The all-night, substance-free celebration has been hosted annually since 1992 in the Andover High School field house for graduating seniors. It was created by parents who wanted to ensure children were safe while celebrating the night of their high school graduation.
About 90 percent of seniors participate each year. At the event, they will have the opportunity to hang out with their classmates one final time before parting ways for the summer and college.
The event will take place from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Registration is now available for members of the senior class only. The cost to attend - which includes all activities and food - is $57. You can pay via pay pal or credit card.

Organizers are seeking volunteers to help make the night a success. Help is needed with set-up, chaperones, smoothie hut servers, refreshment donations and cleanup.
You do not need to have a high school student to volunteer at the event. Volunteers will begin setting up for the event over the weekend from May 31 to June 2 in three-hour shifts.
Those interested in volunteering can sign up at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0445a4a82aa7fc1-senior2
