Parents of High Schools back in the 80’s created a chemical free night on graduation night for seniors. To many drinking and driving accidents happened with seniors on graduation nights; so a totally fun night was started to make graduations safe. Entertainment, food, and fun are the building blocks of seniors fun times on these events.
Entertainment comes in the form of DJ’s, Hypnotists, magicians, bounce inflatables, caricature artists, comedians, temporary tattoos, to chair massages. Depending on the fund raising of that senior class will depend on how many extra fun activities they can provide:)
I have been performing at High school graduation parties since 1991 (when I started with just 1 high school). Now I am up to 11 per June and counting; what that means is I have seen what works well and what doesn’t always work as well! For example, having back to back live entertainers (shows) where the seniors are just sitting and watching for hours in wee hours of the morning. Because it is already a long day (Graduating) the seniors need activities that keep them moving from time to time; dancing, video games, roaming magicians are a big hit, sports and swimming, etc…
Food strategically spread out over the night/morning is a smart move most high schools have down perfectly; Chinese /or BBQ to start the evening off to pizza brought in many hours later to an ice cream social in early hours, etc… all tends to help keep seniors awake and enjoying their special evening of fun!
