Public schools started their graduation season today with 4 different schools across the state holding ceremonies.
Here at Aloha Stadium, Campbell High School kicked off their ceremony at 5 this evening and just wrapped up their reception here in the parking lot.
Other schools graduating tonight include Baldwin, University Lab School, and Kula Aupuni Niʻihau a Kahelelani Aloha.
Now, if you’re looking to get a lei for your graduate…flower shops say the supply for some of more fragrant flowers like tuberose are lower than usual this year.
So rather than taking the risk of going to the shop and finding the shelves sold out…you might want to make your own…because here in Hawaii you can’t go to a graduation without giving a lei, right?
“Its about the love and the support and the gratitude and the dedication that you would give a lei, something that you made.”
“Its the best thing that anyone can ask for.”
If you are making your way to the stadium for your graduation, be aware that you are allowed to take most lei into the stadium.
However, you are not allowed to bring in large-snack lei.
The small candy lei are ok.
Other things not allowed in the stadium include balloons, confetti, poles, and noise makers.
And remember the bag restriction: you’re only allowed one small bag.
Now there will be graduations here all weekend, with Pearl City High School tomorrow night, and Mililani High School Sunday night.
In terms of parking, there are lots of parking available for graduations, but be aware setup for the 50th State Fair is taking up a lot of stalls in the lower Halawa parking lot.
Additional parking will be available at Salt Lake Elementary.
