How the graduation parades will work:

  • Each graduate and their guests will drive through the graduation parade! 
  • Each graduate can have up to 3 cars of guests.
  • When a graduate’s car approaches the stage, they will exit the car and walk across the stage.
  • A professional photographer will be there to take photos and live stream to Facebook 
  • They will then get back into their car and exit the parade flow.
  • Graduates should wear their cap and gown! 
  • Suggestions: 
    • Decorate your car with posters, balloons, car paint, etc. (so long as you’re safe on the road!)
    • Honk your horn! Make noise for your graduate! This is a celebration! 
    • Connect with family and friends prior to coming to the graduation parade; you must arrive with your guests

  1. All family and guests must remain in their vehicles at all times
