20th Annual Walkabout Lights Up Downtown

walkabout-emailartSanta and Mrs. Claus will swoop into Downtown Lakeland on their hybrid sport utility sled to highlight the annual Holiday Walkabout, which marks its 20th year.

The events runs from 6-9 p.m., with Santa holding court at the Pansler Law Firm on 104 E. Pine Street.

Before or after crawling into jolly St. Nick’s lap, take in the Lakeland Regional Medical Center Foundation’s ‘Lights For Life” greening ceremony at the big – is it a fir? – tree in Munn Park.

The Walkabout is a longstanding tradition in Lakeland, with carriage rides, entertainment, caroling, and, of course, shopping. My kids have always loved slaloming through the lovely Munn Park lightscape.

If you like First Friday, you’ll love the Walkabout.
