Help with graduation party

I am having my son's high school graduation party this July and need major help! At first we were going to be doing this at our home but the number of people is growing. Right now we have 120 invites and rising. I am expecting around 90 people to show. My problem is now that we have decided to move this to a local pavillion, I have less money to spend on food. I have a few different options but they all end up costing around the same in my figures. #1- pig roast with the normal sides (corn on the cob, beans, salads,mac n cheese, vegie platter cake etc.) option #2- burgers, sausage and hot dogs with the same sides. option #3- Grilled Ckn BBQ same sides or option #4- pizza and wings with snacks. I would like to be able to provide a nice luncheon/ dinner I am thinking around 3ish to eat. In your expertise what option would end up being the best and most reasonably priced? Any information would be great! Thank you so much Michelle

Have you considered pulled pork or pulled beef sandwiches, same sides? Cheaper than pig roast, much easier than burgers or chicken or pizza. Corn on the cob is nice but messy, and not essential with the other sides. I might do fruit trays instead of veggie trays with the salad; teens like them better.
What a great idea! I think I may end up doing that your suggestion. Thank you very much :)
