Davenport Seniors Graduating Sunday, Watch Out For Increased Pedestrian Traffic Downtown
Graduation season is upon us which means graduation parties and ceremonies. This Sunday, the Davenport Community School District class of 2022 will walk across the stage and move their tassels across their caps at The Adler Theatre. Ahead of Sunday's ceremonies, the City of Davenport wanted to remind the public to be mindful of increased pedestrian traffic and give parking details.
Before we go any further, we want to say congratulations to all of the seniors in the Quad Cities and to the class of 2022! We know the past two years, these now seniors have had to deal with a lot, especially the COVID-19 pandemic. But the time has come for the seniors to receive their diplomas and begin the next chapter in their lives.
On Sunday, June 5, seniors with the Davenport Community School District will host the graduation ceremonies for Davenport North, Central, and West high schools at The Adler Theatre. The class of 2022 with Davenport schools will walk across the stage at The Adler Theatre, the same stage that many great performers have graced.
But with graduation ceremonies comes many family and friends to support these seniors. The City of Davenport took to social media to let everyone know about parking restrictions, and where to park and to remind the general public about increased pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
The City of Davenport said the social media post that parking restrictions will be in place around the Adler Theatre from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday. Parking will be free at all three ramps, including the Harrison Street, Redstone, and RiverCenter ramps from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. the same day.
There will be a drop-off zone in front of the Adler Theatre along with handicap parking on both sides of East 3rd Street between Brady Street and Pershing Avenue.
