Calling all high school seniors and juniors – here’s your chance to catch what is considered the best grad party in the west.Sober Grad 2013 is set to commence this coming Saturday, May 11TH from 10:00 p.m. to 2:30 a.m.

If you’re planning to attend, there’s one item that you need to know about. This year’s Sober Grad party is at a new location – Two Rivers Convention Center at 159 Main Street in Grand Junction.

Sober Grad is a non-profit organization sponsored by Taco Bell, Pepsi Cola, and other community partners. The event is coordinated through volunteer efforts of a board of directors and hundreds of community volunteers that include law enforcement officers, School District #51 administration/teachers, parents and others.

Sober Grad is considered a safe alcohol and drug free alternative graduation party for all local area high school juniors and seniors. Sophomores and freshmen (as well as out-of-town guests) can attend as well, but only as an invited guest of a high school junior and senior. Also, everyone who attends must be prepared to show their school I.D.

If you have never been to a Sober Grad party before, then you are in for a treat with all the scheduled activities and entertainment.

Here’s a sampling of what to expect:

  • Casino Style Games including poker
  • Lip Sync Music Videos
  • Photo Booth
  • Sumo Wrestling
  • DJs
  • NASCAR Simulator
  • Face Painting and Tattoos
  • Mechanical Bull
  • Inflatable Twister
  • Bungee Run
  • Obstacle Course
  • Cash Vault

In addition, door prizes will be awarded every two minutes throughout the entire evening, and at the end of the night, six lucky grads will walk away with cash prizes.
