East Bakersfield High School is celebrating 75 years of rich history, academics and athletics this weekend -- and it's been dubbed the party of the year in east Bakersfield.

Thursday on "First Look with Scott Cox," Rick Van Horne, with EBHS, brought a list of prominent alumni who have gone on to success in the community and country.

The list included athletes, lawyers, actors and artists, among others.

There will be keynote speakers, music from alumni bands, catered lunch and alumni tents starting at 10 a.m. Saturday.

Horne said organizers are expecting more than 6,000 people, so he recommended alumni get their tickets soon.

Tickets are $25 and include lunch, a gift bag and admission to the football game.

Tickets can be purchased from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday in the school's finance office or call 871-7221.
