02 Nov The Sights and Sounds of Downtown Lakeland
Now that the holidays are fast approaching, it’s best to look around you and see what fun activities Downtown Lakeland has to offer in these periods of merriment. The ber months are always the most enjoyable because of the many different things that pop out around you—whether it’s a new food park or a Christmas village. There is always something to look forward to once the ber months set in.
And since November is basically just around the corner, it’s time to stop and think what amazing things we can expect from Downtown Lakeland—from farmers’ market to theater performances at the Promenade.
Watch out for theatrical presentations
Lakeland is a small city town. By comparison to other markets, it is a minuscule one—way, way smaller than Tampa, Orlando, Miami, and many other cities in Florida. But what Lakeland boasts off is its sense of community. There are always activities in Lakeland that are community-driven and aim to build camaraderie among its members. Schools—from grade school to college—are often seen producing theatrical performances that showcase the diverse talents of Lakeland residents. It’s this undying testament of love to theater and performance arts that make Downtown Lakeland stand out from the rest of the pack.
Visit Christmas villages early
Christmas villages are truly the stars of every holiday season. Can you imagine spending a Christmas season without going to a Christmas village? There is something about the cool wind on your face and the snow-capped rooftops that scream Christmas to us. Christmas villages, especially in Downtown Lakeland, offer varied items—from hot cocoa and empanadas to handmade trinkets that make perfect Christmas gifts.
Train yourself in farmers’ markets
If you haven’t made the trip to the local farmers’ market, now is the best time to do so. Since the holiday season is fast approaching, it’s time to hone your haggling skills. You need to master the art of negotiating with sellers, as well as looking for the most practical items to buy. Often, when we’re confronted by a barrage of nice things, we end up consuming more than what we need. Don’t fall to the same tricks over and over again. Before the holiday season sets in, make sure to start thinking of ways on how to be a wise buyer.
There are loads of surprises that await you in Downtown Lakeland. If this is your first time to visit the town, you’re coming at the most festive time of the year. Lucky you!
