The 6th Annual Lakeland Derby is Friday, April 26th at 5:30 p.m. Staged on Lake Mirror in downtown Lakeland, the derby features ten hand-crafted swan paddle boats racing to the finish line. Each swan has a dedicated owner/breeder and a trained jockey for the race.
Burnetti Children’s Foundation is proud to be the VIP Party Sponsor for the event, which raises funds for Lakeland Volunteers in Medicine, a volunteer-run medical clinic that provides free quality medical care to the working uninsured of Polk County.
Adding to the excitement of the swan boat race is live entertainment, kids activities, food and fireworks. Don your derby hat, cheer on your favorite swan, and we’ll see you at the Derby!
