As we head towards graduation time here in Dawson Creek, below is some information on what is happening this weekend and what to expect.

The 2015 Graduation Ceremony will begin at 7:00 pm on Friday, June 19 and will take place at the Encana Events Center. 

Parents and guests should be aware that traffic heading into the Encana Events Centre on the evening of grad could be quite congested due to road construction on Highway 2.  Organizers ask parents, grads and guests to refrain from parking in the Holiday Inn, UFA and Chances parking lots during our the graduation ceremony.

All grads are asked to be dressed in their gowns and ready for the group picture that will be taken at 6:00 pm inside the arena. Grads may choose to enter the Encana Events Centre at Door A (located at the South side of the building) or through the main entrance.

Saturday, June 20 will be the Red Carpet Event starting at 6:00PM at the Encana Events Centre.

All grads should be parked in their designated parking space at the soccer park staging area no later than 5:20 pm.  Grads are asked to enter the soccer park from 116th ave.  No vehicle will be permitted in the staging area without the appropriate green parking ticket.   Organizers will be providing water and other beverages for students and guests as they wait for their time to exit the staging area.

Dawson Creek Secondary School has applied for and been granted road closures for 122 Ave. and a portion of 4th St. during the Red Carpet Event.  A flagging company has been hired to ensure the road closures are followed.  Signage will be posted along 122nd avenue and 4th street asking the public to refrain from parking on the sides of the streets to allow vehicles connected to the event to move unencumbered.   The road closures will be in affect from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Saturday, June 20th.  Organizers ask the motoring public to give yourself time in advance of our events to navigate the roads

Organizers would like to thank everyone in advance and hope to see you at the events this weekend!
