This event is sure to be a hit, Lakeland. To welcome back the Detroit Tigers and usher in Spring Training, Polk County is hosting an old-fashioned barbecue — and you’re invited.

- A BBQ buffet: Featuring all the classics like pulled pork, grilled chicken quarters, ribs, sausages, coleslaw, drinks + more.
- A keepsake: Take home a Souvenir Tigers Mug to commemorate the event.
- A celebration: Kick off Spring Training right.*
