Child of the Sun 2011 and 2012 were a huge success! Hundreds of triathletes hit our lake and streets for an urban sprint course that everyone enjoyed while 5K participants enjoyed a challenging route. Then we rolled right into a spectacular array of legendary jazz musicians that treated us to smooth sounds throughout the evening.
The Lakeland Rotary Club is ready to do it again and plans are underway to bring an even better Child of the Sun event for 2013. After being granted permission from Florida Southern College, who originally founded the festival in 1988, the Lakeland Rotary Club has been hard at work planning and organizing an amazing community cultural event.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 6, 2013, and be ready to enjoy local jazz musicians in a beautiful outdoor setting. An array of food and beverage vendors will be on hand so you can enjoy delicious fare while grooving to the sounds of music. No coolers will be allowed. As this is a fundraising event, concession sales will benefit our AED Project.
Our event will take place rain or shine! Stay tuned to our Facebook pages for all the most current information regarding weather details:

Don’t forget to sign up for the Urban Triathlon and 5k. We’ve added this urban sprint triathlon to gain participation from one of the fastest growing sports in the United States. Don’t forget about our 5k for those short distance enthusiasts.
The best part of this signature event is the fact that we’re doing all of this to support our AED project to purchase Automatic External Defibrillator devices for the Lakeland Police Department patrol cars. Through proceeds generated from Child of the Sun, The Lakeland Rotary Club will continue to support its mission of providing grant funds to those groups that do so much in our community.
