Lakeland Florida – Celebrate Seniors at “First Friday”

The Downtown Lakeland Partnership hosts every month on the First Friday of each month a free event at Munn Park. January’s theme is “Celebrate Seniors”; this celebration is on January 2nd, 2009 inviting seniors and their families for a fun evening filled with arts, classic car shows, music and entertainment along the streets surrounding the lovely “Munn Park”.


Why “Celebrate Seniors”? To me, seniors today are yesterday’s groundbreakers – who were the teachers who taught my children, the doctors who delivered my children, the carpenters who built my home, police, firefighters, lawyers, plumbers, entrepreneurs and service members of the military – they are your fathers, mothers, grandfathers and grandmothers – the backbone of your family truly deserving to be honored on this special day.

Remember this is a family celebration – an event filled for the whole family to enjoy.

Lakeland’s First Friday free event starts at 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Senior service organizations with info about their groups will be at Munn Park as well as shops and restaurants will stay open late for your convenience.

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.
