Paradise Gardens Park splashes to life with hundreds of colorful dancing fountains, dynamic lighting, lasers, projections, and breathtaking fire effects, all theatrically choreographed to some of the year’s hottest tunes. It’s the perfect farewell celebration for Grad Nite 2019 as the nighttime spectacular salutes their Senior Year and inspires everyone to look forward to an exciting horizon of new adventures!

10. BONUS – Chaperones will have their very own Chaperone Lounge to enjoy some snacks and unwind for a bit throughout the night.
