The Lakeland Derby is an annual “Derby Style” event staged on beautiful Lake Mirror in downtown Lakeland. With the entertaining flair of the event and the competitive spirit of the race, the Derby again promises to be a memorable occasion in 2014. Adding to the excitement, the Derby is scheduled on Friday, April 25th, 2014, just one week prior to the Kentucky Derby.
The Lakeland Derby captures the thrill of a race and the purity of sports entertainment in a hometown setting. The true essence of the Derby is the reward of knowing the proceeds will support Lakeland Volunteers in Medicine. The Derby features ten beautifully hand-crafted swan paddle boats in a thrilling race to the finish line.
