The purpose of the Lakeland Margarita Ball is to make the Christmas season a little brighter for the underprivileged children in our community. The donations of gifts and cash will be distributed throughout the greater Lakeland area to local charity organizations. We want to pay close attention to the people that make the event such a success- you all! This year we want to let you know what you’ve always been to the Lakeland Margarita Society…SUPERHEROES! Truly, without your support of this event some children wouldn’t have a Christmas. So, on behalf of all the members of the Lakeland Margarita Society, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being Superheroes to the children!

Then purchase a toy of a $10 or more value. Bring both your ticket and your unwrapped toy with you! Gates open at 8pm at the Lake Mirror Promenade – 121 South Lake Ave. in Lakeland.  Enjoy food from a variety of local restaurants in town and unlimited margaritas and beer (Included with purchase of ticket).

    Curious as to why the hours have changed from the past. After you wait 45 minutes to an hour to get in, you only have 2 hours to visit with friends and enjoy the surroundings. Thanks.

      Tammie- thanks for your inquiry, as far as I know Margarita Ball has always had the same hours of 8:00 – 11:00 pm, not starting before 8:00 and not stretching beyond 11:00 to be respectful of those living near the promenade. While I don’t believe I can change the hours of the event, I can work with the team to ensure that event entry moves as efficiently as possible. Last year, everyone was in the park in ten minutes. It seems like maybe you’ve been to the event before, we’re so glad you’re thinking of coming back! We’ve got a new band this year and are really looking forward to the best turn out yet!

    The website says tickets currently not available? Also I thought last year you had a VIP ticket that got you an extra hour?

    • cparry1176 says:

      Hello Robert! I just checked on the website and it seems to be up and working. Please let me know if you have further problems. I’m sorry but we did not have that package in the past that I can recall. We are so happy that you are showing interest in coming and please let me know if I can help you any further!

    Not clear why it is called a “ball”. Is there dancing and a dance floor? It looks more like just another street festival. Are there more pictures?

    • cparry1176 says:

      Hello! When this event was started 27 years ago they decided to call it the Margarita Ball even though it is a casual event. It has been enjoyed by everyone who has supported this cause. It is a festive night at a beautiful location where fold enjoy fabulous food, drinks, dancing, music as well as making Christmas morning special for many underprivileged children. The name is synonymous is a fabulous time and cause!
