Here is another reason Lodi and Tokay graduations should stay in Lodi: In addition to the tradition of the Lodi and Tokay graduations being held at the Grape Bowl, there are also economic reasons.
The families and friends who attend graduations typically take their grads to dinner either before or after graduation to celebrate. Lodi has become an excellent town for restaurants. With graduations being held in Stockton, many families will chose to go to dinner in Stockton rather than Lodi.
The Lodi and Tokay graduations should be a 100-percent hometown experience.
