Party in the Lot is an event held every year during Homecoming week that welcomes all students and members of the Northbrook community, according to Cameron Glass, senior class board member. The party is scheduled to take place in the Science parking lot on Wednesday, Oct. 4 from 5:30 p.m. to around 7:30 p.m.

“We’re planning to have a water balloon toss, a watermelon eating challenge, inflatables and blow-up games, as well as [a] Cheesie’s food truck,” Glass said.

Voting for the winning Homecoming float and charity fundraising are also scheduled to occur at the event, Glass said.

“This year, we are finding an activity to raise money [for hurricane relief], so the more people that come, the better,” said Glass. “We might raise money by having people pay a couple dollars to take a couple swings to smash some different objects, like a car.”

Junior Jeff Lee said he attended Party in the Lot last year, and his favorite part about the event was the positive atmosphere and positive mood of the other people there.

Lee said the party is a great way to have a night to avoid the stress of homework and the pressure of school.

“Everyone seemed to be having a fun time [last year],” Lee said.

According to Glass, the purpose of Party in the Lot is to funnel the energy of Homecoming week and to enjoy a night with friends.

“It’s a really good time, it’s goofy and there’s good food,” said Glass. “Everyone should try it, there’s no reason not to go.”
