The Lakeland Hispanic Club is proud to have organized the Lakeland Hispanic Festival for 23 years and we believe that it is important that our community continue to celebrate its heritage and roots, however, it is important to continue the tradition with a special interest in safety and well-being. of our community. Your health and safety, along with that of our volunteers, sponsors, and vendors, is and will always be the number one priority for us. We have taken steps to ensure that you feel confident, safe and comfortable when you come to our Hispanic festival and enjoy a unique experience. However, just like each of us, when we are at home or at work, you play a critical role in making this a fun and safe event. These protocols require cooperation and teamwork. We ask that you keep in mind the following CDC suggested guidelines for large gatherings, keeping in mind that this is primarily an outdoor event.
