Downtown Date Night on Friday, July 26th, 5pm-8:30pm

Downtown Lakeland’s next Downtown Date Night is Friday, July 26, 2019 from 5pm to 8:30pm. Bring your partner, spouse, coworker, or friend Downtown for a fun night out, and enjoy Downtown after dark. Stores will be open late, and the shopping will be great!

Enjoy live music at various locations on North Kentucky Avenue to create a special ambiance on the street. Our guest musicians are Russ Brode, Bryan Rivers, and Justin Bowne.

Participate in a Downtown Date Night Scavenger Hunt–20 teams (of two or more) will each win $20 in gift cards from Downtown businesses. Here’s how to play:

  1. Pick up a blank game sheet at participating retailers. You can work in teams of 2 or more or play individually (all players will be able to enter to win a prize regardless of how many game sheets are completed).
  2. Find the decorated game rocks hidden at participating retailers to obtain “mystery words.”
  3. Use the mystery words to complete a secret phrase.
  4. Turn in completed game sheets at Focus Realty at 117 N. Kentucky Ave. by 9pm on July 26th. All players associated with a successfully completed game sheet will be eligible to enter to win a prize. 20 players will each win a Downtown Gift Card valued at $20 each. Winners will be notified on Monday, July 29.

Win up to $100 worth of Downtown Gift Certificates–the More You Shop, the More Chances You Get to Win! When you shop in participating retail stores on Date Night, you will receive one entry for every $10 that you spend. Winners will be notified on Monday, July 29. If you don’t win on Date Night, however, no worries–you will also be entered to win a grand prize of $500 worth of gift cards on September 6th at the end of our Summer Shop Hop promotion!

Text DTownLove to 41400 for a chance to win a $25 gift card to a Downtown business! One winner will be randomly chosen via the text message system on July 26, 2019.
