For most students, summer means doing absolutely nothing and being the human equivalent of a slug for three months. But for seniors, summer means moving out and figuring out future plans. Somewhere in-between all of this madness, a graduation party is thrown for everyone to come and celebrate all of your high school and future accomplishments and goals.
Most people are having their graduation parties at their houses.
“I chose to have it at my house because we have a large backyard, and its located close to the school. It’s also easier to have it there than to go somewhere else”, said Rachel Barner.
However, this isn’t the only alternative. Many people are choosing to have their parties elsewhere. For example, Anna Swartout will be holding her celebration at Stainbrook Park.
“It’s a really pretty spot by the creek and it has a volleyball net for something to do,” Swartout said.
We all know that a party isn’t a party without a lot of food and drinks. Soda and some kind of protein are obviously essential to any outdoor party, but some people like to make their own variations on what they make. Kayla Justus decided to have German meatballs as the main dish at her party.
“They’re delicious, they represent my heritage, and it is a symbol of good luck for the future,” Justus said.
Having normal food is also just as good. Staples such as burgers, hot dogs, and fried chicken are a hit with all ages and appetites. However you choose to do your graduation party is up to you, and the possibilities are endless
