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! Again, 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!

    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.

    • cparry1176 says:

      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!

  7. Kathy says:

    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!

    • cparry1176 says:

      They will start being mailed at the beginning of next week. Thanks!

      • Ruth ericson says:

        Today is the 12th and I still have not received my tickets. I purchased two as a birthday gift which I need for this Saturday, is there a number I can call??

      • cparry1176 says:

        What a wonderful gift. My name is Carolyn and you can call me. 863-899-0334. Tickets were just mailed Monday. We got a bit of a late start due a printing glitch and Veteran’s Day slowed us a bit further. You should receive them by tomorrow if you do not please let me know and I will make alternate arrangements for you!

      • ruth says:

        Thanks Carolyn for the quick response. I will look for them tomorrow.. hopefully they will arrive.

  10. Laura Tenpenny says:

    I am moving and am worried that the mail forward request will delay my ticket delivery. I purchased them online. Can I pick them up instead of getting in the mail?

  11. Nancy Lang says:

    so excited to go!! I didn’t know anything about this until today! Yeah

  12. Shari says:

    I am trying to purchase 41 tickets. As a group rate. How can I do this for the $30/pp rate? The website reflects only the $40 rate

  13. Brandy says:

    Where do we go to purchase tickets? I realize we will need to pick up at will call but can’t find online where to go get them.

  14. Sherri Taylor says:

    Can you still purchase tickets at Southside before the event?

  15. cheri fuller says:

    Since Im purchasing 24 tickets on-line, AFTER THE 17TH, is it possible for me to come by and pick them up so as to not bog down the entry line with 24 names?

  16. Kate says:

    Are any wine or spirits suppliers sponsoring the cash bar?

  17. Heidi says:

    I won our tickets and we are one of the families that receives help at this time of year, do I still need to bring a 10$ gift?

  18. Aundrea says:

    HI. Is it just beer and margaritas or is wine complementary as well?

  19. G.Gantt says:
