Red, White & Kaboom, presented by T. Mims Corporation, will take place at Lake Mirror along the Frances Langford Promenade in Lakeland on July 3.

Red, White & Kaboom Independence Celebration

The event beings at 6:00 p.m. with a live concert featuring Gary Love and the Moonlighters. From humble beginnings to sold out venues, Gary Love and the Moonlighters offer a unique and unforgettable music experience. Over the last two decades, they have become one of central Florida’s premier cover bands playing fan favorites ranging in years from the 1970s to the 2020s. The band promises to deliver a show stopping live music experience that is sure to please the crowd. Members include Gary Love (vocal/guitar), Nick Gregory (lead guitar), Zach Miller (guitar), Matt Fields (bass), Josh Gonzalez (keyboard) and Jerry Escobedo (percussion). A variety of food trucks will be parked along Lake Mirror during the event, so bring your appetite. You may also want bring a blanket and chairs as there is plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the evening’s festivities. A breathtaking fireworks display will dazzle the crowd at 9:00 p.m.

Rather than charging admission, T. Mims Corporation and the City of Lakeland asks everyone attending to bring at least one non-perishable food item. When you arrive, you will see volunteers collecting canned food items that will be donated to Volunteers in Service to the Elderly (VISTE). VISTE is a non-profit organization that serves Lakeland, Bartow, Mulberry and Ft. Meade. Established in 1983, VISTE’s primary goal is to enable elderly persons to continue living independently and safely in their own homes.

Please share your share your experiences on social media by using #redwhiteandkaboom2024, #RWK2024, and the related Facebook filter.

All City parking garages will be open for the Independence Day celebration, and parking will be free. For more information, visit lakelandgov.net.
