Children’s Museum of Phoenix: Drive-Thru Graduation Parade

Saturday, May 23 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

The Children’s Museum of Phoenix is celbrating all graduates from preschoolers to college with a Drive-Thru Graduation Parade. The event is free and will take place in the Museum’s parking lot.

This event is sponsored by AZ Milk Producers who will be onsite to celebrate the graduates with Museum staff. They will have special giveaways for the first 250 cars!

Adhering to social distancing protocol, Museum staffers will be stationed along the parade route, some in costume, with signs and cheers to celebrate graduates. Participants will be able to drive through a bubble tunnel and have a foam cannon shot in the air as they drive by. DJ Miss Mixx will be on site providing music to add to the celebratory feel and at the end of the route the Museum will give a shout out to the graduate and have a takeaway for participants which will include a special diploma to mark the occasion.

Other costumed characters will be cheering on the graduates along the course including the Arizona Ghostbusters.

Those who wish to get a special shout out at the end of the parade route are asked to put a sheet of paper in their front window, passenger side, showing their child’s first name and grade he/she is graduating from.

Only vehicles will be allowed through the parade route. Passengers must stay within their cars. Vehicles are asked to enter the Museum’s parking lot from Van Buren driving west. From there they will follow a well-marked parade route through the Museum’s parking lot. They will exit onto 7th street. Foot traffic will not be allowed to participate.

The Children’s Museum of Phoenix continues to be closed due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and will, therefore, not be open for play. The Museum is assessing the situation on a daily basis and is in the process of formulating plans and protocols for their future reopening.
