Reminder: It’s graduation week in Lafayette


LAFAYETTE, La. (Leigh Guidry/The Advertiser)- This is your friendly reminder that it’s graduation week and traffic is coming.

This year Lafayette Parish high school graduations will be a little different.

After years of doing most of them in one day at the Cajundome, the ceremonies are being split between two days — this Friday and Saturday.

Plus, South Louisiana Community College and its Early College Academy will hold commencements Thursday, also at the Cajundome.
