By Dawn Kociubes and Kerry Rackey

On the night of Bedford High School Graduation, June 6th, 2019, the All Night Graduation Committee welcomed 159 Bedford graduating seniors to the 32nd annual All Night Graduation Party.  This long-standing Bedford tradition offers a safe and substance-free event on the night of graduation.  The seniors arrive at 10:30 pm and stay in a completely transformed Bedford High School until 5:30 am.  They are thoroughly entertained throughout the evening with a variety of food and a constant stream of fun activities.  The activities, entertainment options, and performers are some of the best-kept secrets in Bedford, allowing each and every graduating class to experience it anew.
