Upcoming Events

The Lake Wales Walking Tour App Launch will kick-off on Saturday, October 29th with a fun-filled day of music, food, and special giveaways! 

At 10am, the Museum will officially “christen” its downtown walking tour – the first 200 patrons will get complementary headphones, courtesy of IronRock Software, a bottle of water courtesy of Citizens Bank, and an insulated tote-bag courtesy of Michele's Candy Arrangements & Gifts. We will also offer discounts from local downtown businesses. So come, tour our historic downtown, and experience our downtown shopping scene!

The tours will start at the Lake Wales Museum & Cultural Center where the party begins. We’ll feature music by Weather for Strangers and the Lake Wales High School Marching Band, Food trucks, and the "Story Box" courtesy of Solara Industries Inc. The "Story Box" is a mobile unit that makes recording your oral history experiences fun and easy! Step inside and tell us YOUR story. 

We hope to see you for this historic event!
