Watch out for ladders and black cats in your path, Lakeland. It’s officially Friday the 13th, commonly known as the most unlucky day of the year. Here are four ways to celebrate today:

  • Several tattoo shops are offering deals, including Atomic Tattoos and Lakeland Tattoo Company. Pro tip: Grab your spot in line early.
  • If you’re a little -stitious, head to the Superstition art exhibition at ART/ifact studios from 7 to 11:11 p.m. The event will feature a dark market, DJ, and ink by Patterson Tattoos.
  • Feline lucky? Cross paths with a new furry friend — bonus points if it’s a black cat. Check out Botany Cats’ mobile cat lounge at tonight’s Friday the Fur-Teenth pet parade at Bonnet Springs Park at 7 p.m.
  • It doesn’t get more classic than this. The Polk Theatre is showing “Friday the 13th” at 7:30 p.m.
