The reception will officially begin once those who’ve chosen to attend the cemetery return. You may go early and await their return. However, parking will be limited due to other events happening that day. If you can not find parking, there are many near by business you can park at within a short walking distance.
There is also a teachers lot behind the school that may have extra spaces.
