Lakeland Florida – First Friday’s Theme is Art Walk

The Downtown Lakeland Partnership prides itself of hosting and organizing First Friday. This monthly celebration offers a different theme each month. This family celebration of the “Dog Days of Summer” and “Back to School” were great success.




This month First Friday theme in Lakeland is “Art Walk”. I’m always impressed of what Lakeland has to offer with the art exhibits. I’ve visited various exhibits, such as the memorable Butterfly Exhibit in Munn Park and the Swan exhibit throughout Lakeland, which was well received within this community and I’m anxious to see another great art exhibit featuring sculptures. You be able to vote for your favorite sculptures displayed along Lemon Street Promenade. An opening reception for “Oncology on Canvas”, an exhibit of international art created by cancer patients, their families and health care providers, was announced by The Watson Clinic Foundation, Arts in Medicine and J. Rowan Galleries, Inc. Art Galleries throughout Downtown Lakeland will have art reception. 

Students from the Harrison School for the Arts will be performing in Munn Park, as well as performances from local artists bringing entertainment for the entire family along the streets. As always, during Lakeland’s First Friday, shops and restaurants stay open late. Are you a classic car show fanatic – then you’ll have plenty to see along Tennessee Avenue?

Newsflash – Update! Students from the Harrison School for the Arts have been rehearsing everyday for the upcoming Musical Theater performance “Pirates of Penzance this month. They will showcase their talents with a sneak preview at 6:30 p.m. 7:15 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.


The free event is October 3rd and starts at 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
