Silver Moon Drive-In

Silver Moon Drive-In in Lakeland is one of this coming weekend's "Best Bets."

August is coming to a close and September is ready for us! I’ve selected a few out of the ordinary events for you to check out this Labor Day Weekend!

On Thursday, Epcot Food and Wine Festival starts up. Though the event continues through November 23, head over to Orlando to experience the first weekend of it. Tip — though entry into the festival is included in admission to Epcot, some of the special events and workshops cost an extra fee and must be booked in advance.

Check out a Sunday Brunch with the Chef to dine at a delicious breakfast buffet and attend a q-and-a with a celebrity chef! This Sunday’s is Chef Jamie Deen, who you may know from his mother’s show, “Paula’s Home Cooking.”

On Saturday, throw it back and go to the local drive-in. Silver Moon opened in Lakeland in 1948. Feel the nostalgia and choose a bite from their snack bar as you enjoy first-run movies for prices better than movie theaters!

Sunday is a good day for boating, so grab a friend and an obnoxious giant float to join in on the fun! The chain will be packed, so be sure to follow boating safety rules and invite all of your friends to meet you out on the lake.
