There is SNOW in the forecast for downtown Lakeland! This year, Snowfest will look a little different but the show will still go on as the City of Lakeland Celebrates the 40th Anniversary of this holiday tradition. Snowfest 2020 will take place on Friday, December 4th and Saturday, December 5th from 6-9 p.m. at the Frances Langford Promenade at Lake Mirror.
The event will feature a stroll through the snow along with other holiday delights in the area of the amphitheater on the east side of Lake Mirror. Visitors will enter the snowy promenade through four access tents where volunteers will be collecting the suggested price of admission – one canned food item per person entering. All collected non-perishable food items will be donated to Senior Orphans of Polk County and VISTE (Volunteers in Service to the Elderly).
Entrance tents will be located at the following Promenade locations:
• The Alley Promenade Entrance (between Lakeland Electric and Hollis Garden)
• The sidewalk leading to the Promenade at the Magnolia Building
• The sidewalk leading to the Promenade at the Lake Mirror Center
• The sidewalk leading to the Promenade at the Volunteerism Statue parking lot
Manmade snow will be falling as visitors enter the designated event area. Along with the snow, there will be arts & craft vendors, a beautiful 30-foot-tall Christmas Tree, Santa and Mrs. Clause in a snow globe, Santa’s workshop with fun treats, a book giveaway sponsored by the Junior League of Greater Lakeland, entertainment, and tasty food trucks along with a number of vehicles on display from the presenting sponsor, Audi.
Social distancing and masks for attendees strongly encouraged.
