Business is booming for Amarillo event venues this year with many people making up for the parties that were cancelled last year. Some 2020 graduates have the chance to walk with the 2021 graduates this year. So, the demand for graduation parties has increased, causing many venues in the area to be completely booked through the summer. Zuniga says she has had to turn some people away recently, as last year’s and this year’s grads have been booking parties with her since last November. Grays says even weekday events have started to pick up. Many party vendors like florists, cake decorators and photographers are now seeing an increase in business as well. The high demand is making up for what they lost out on last year. Event Venue Business owners in Amarillo say there’s more flexibility if wanting to book an event during the weekdays but still suggest booking events well in advance this summer.
