GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

There are few moments for parents that make them more proud than seeing their child walk across the stage to receive their diploma. To get there, here's what guests attending graduations at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena need to know about their new clear bag policy.

In October 2017, The Well implemented the clear bag policy, which applies to all events including concerts, hockey - and yes, graduations.

Under the policy, the following items are approved for entry:

  • Clear bag provided by Bon Secours Wellness arena
  • Bags that are clear, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12”x6”x12”
  • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bags (Ziploc bag or similar)
  • Small clutch bags, with or without a handle or strap, that do not exceed 4.5”x6.5”

Prohibited bags include purses larger than a clutch, briefcases, backpacks, cinch bags or fanny packs larger than the size restriction.

The arena said diapers and other baby supplies can be carried in a clear bag. Only one bag is allowed per person, but each family member is allowed to carry an approved bag.

An exception will be made for medically-necessary items after inspection, the arena said.

The following graduations are scheduled at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena:
