Spokane Public Schools hosts graduations at Riverfront Park Pavilion this weekend

SPOKANE, Wash. — Forget the drive-thru graduations, because students can now come together to celebrate the end of high school this weekend.

Not only can students celebrate the end of high school, parents can also finally be there in-person to watch their kids walk the stage.

Spokane Public Schools will be holding six graduations at the Pavilion this weekend.  This comes at a time where Spokane is starting to feel much more normal again with people out and about downtown.

That’s why some might be wondering where they can park. There are nearby lots and street parking near Riverfront Park.

Also, the district said people can park at North Central High School, and they’ll have shuttles going back and forth to drop them off.

The district is hoping for some nice weather with all of these graduations outside and loved ones watching from the grass. Each graduate gets two tickets.

Masks will be required, but there will still be two sections, one for vaccinated people. Those people don’t have to distance in that area, but if they’re sitting there, they already had to show the district your proof of vaccination.

1,000 people will be in that section, but neither section will have actual seats though.

So, that’s why they should know what they can bring to the graduations.

Blankets and beach towels are allowed, along with low-backed beach chairs. Attendees can also bring umbrellas and water bottles.
