Universal’s Grad Bash 2013 was a private event for graduating high school seniors around the country. Lecanto High School’s seniors attended this spectacular event in Orlando Friday, May 2, from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.
The one-night event gave the deserving seniors access to both Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme parks and featured a live concert from Pitbull and other entertainers, as well as the parks’ rides and attractions. Students from around the country gather together at Grad Bash to celebrate their last year of high school and share unforgettable memories with all their friends at the most exciting event of the year.
Many students from LHS were excited and enthusiastic about Grad Bash.
“I’ve been counting down the days until Grad Bash was here,” said senior Megan Straight.
“I can’t believe that my high school year is almost over,” said senior Christina Summers. “Grad Bash is definitely a great way to end my year off by spending time with my closest friends before I begin college in fall at Florida State University.”
As the students made their arrival at Universal, they were a bit disappointed by the rain, but it was not going to stop the Panthers from having fun.
“Out of all the days, it had to rain during Grad Bash. Once we got there, it was pouring rain, but I was determined to have the best night of my life,” said senior Lauren Siller.
“The rain wasn’t going to stop me from enjoying my time at Grad Bash. I paid $100 for this field trip, and I enjoyed it no matter what,” said senior Tiffany Valenti.
The most exciting part of the event was the concert, where many students thought that Pitbull and the other performers rocked the entire night out.
“The concert was the best part of the night. It was a night to remember, and I had such a great time,” said senior Richard Carlton.
“[It was] the best night of my life. I wish I could go back again and again,” said senior Daniella Darling.
“I honestly did not want the night to end; it was perfect,” said senior Paola Vega.
Universal’s Grad Bash is a once-in-a-lifetime school event that no senior should ever miss out on.
