In support of our community, we wanted to create an event that brings us back to the good old days when our entire community celebrated together one day every year. Last April, we had our first event. We expected attendance to be between 3,000 - 7,000. But what happened surprised everyone... Approximately 30,000 people attended... more than any first time event held in Lakeland. We are so proud of our community and its support for our affordable family event.
It is with great pride that we present an original, old fashioned neighborhood event, the 2nd Annual Florida Ice Cream Festival to be held on April 12 and 13, 2014 at SUN 'n FUN grounds at Lakeland Linder Airport in Lakeland, Florida. This year's event has been expanded to a 2nd day to promote Family and Church with performances by area Christian Bands along with vendors, activities and events from the first day.
The Benefits of the The Florida Ice Cream Festival will be used to promote Financial Literacy in Polk County. In addition, our featured charity is the Central Florida Aerospace Academy, an academy dedicated to inspiring today’s youth to explore and reach new heights in air and space.
Hope to see you at the Second Annual Florida Ice Cream Festival!
