Every May, Princeton University holds some of the most well-attended college reunions in the world. Each graduating class that graduated a multiple of five years from a given year (5th, 10th, 15th, etc.) holds a separate event featuring large outdoor tents, bands, and an ocean of beer.
The cornerstone of the weekend is the P-rade on Saturday, a parade of alumni from every graduating year. The oldest living alum leads the parade (more often than not in a golf cart), followed by the 25th Reunion class, and then every year from oldest to youngest. The P-Rade ends as the graduating seniors race onto Poe Field under review of the President of the University. An elaborate evening fireworks display set to music, first held to celebrate the university's 250th anniversary, but repeated every year since by popular demand, closes the celebration.
