20th Annual Citizens Bank & Trust Luau After Hours

Citizens Bank & Trust

Enjoy an evening of sampling, sipping, mingling and entertainment by Music Makers! Every April, Citizens Bank & Trust hosts the Luau & King of the Wings, held "on the deck" at Citizens Bank & Trust Downtown to celebrate and thank loyal Chamber investors. This year, the Lakeland Chamber and Citizens Bank & Trust celebrate their 20th year! For two decades, the Citizens Bank & Trust Luau After Hours is THE networking event of the season! Enjoy a party atmosphere, with food samples, live music, and complimentary beverages courtesy of Bernie Little Distributors and Tucker's Southside! The highlight of this event is the crowning of the King of the Wings and the Judges' Choice. After sampling wings from the competitors, each guest casts their vote for their favorite King of the Wings and the competitor with the most votes wins the 2019 King of the Wings! The Judges' Choice is determined by seven highly-qualified judges voting on three categories: appearance, flavor, and tenderness. The competitor with the highest score in all categories will be crowned the 2019 Judges' Choice!
