Congratulations to all the Columbia High School graduates who will be honored at commencement today at Essex County College.

Tonight, the party begins after 10 p.m. for Midnight Madness, the great alcohol-free event. The all-nighters will meet at CHS and be driven by bus to a secret location where they will board a cruise ship for a ride around Manhattan.

This is the first year for the floating festivities, a change from the previous parties held in secret land-locked locations. 

See the invitation that was put out months ago below:

Midnight Madness 2016!!!

Midnight Madness/Project Graduation is an All Night Party and is part of a national effort to provide a drug- and alcohol-free celebration for seniors on Graduation Night. More teens are involved in car accidents on graduation night than any other. This planned festivity provides a safe venue for OUR Newly Minted Graduates to hang out with their peers and celebrate, thus reducing the fatalities associated with graduation. Parents and guardians can relax knowing their children are safe.
Following their graduation ceremony on June 22, the graduates will meet at 10 p.m. in the CHS cafeteria and then travel by bus to a cruise for a full night of celebrating. Your payment of $100 includes:
  • an all-inclusive party and transportation to and from Manhattan
  • a buffet of all-you-can eat and drink (soft drinks only)
  • fabulous entertainment — an interactive DJ, casino games, magicians/mentalists, tarot card readers, airbrush tattoo artists, and pop-a-shot basketball and air hockey, just to name a few fun things.
