PITT COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) -If you’re planning to attend any of the high school graduations at Minges Coliseum this weekend, Pitt County Schools has some parking advice.

The school system says there will be 2,800 parking spots at Minges, the stadium, as well as on the 14th Street and Elmhurst overflow lots.
