In a huge show of support, family, friends, and other well-wishers will line Main Street on Saturday, May 15, to "hoot and holler" at members of the Class of 2021 as they pass by as part of the planned colorful, celebratory Senior Car Parade.
The parade will start at 9 a.m. at the middle school, winding along Main Street to the high school.
"The seniors will decorate their cars to reflect their plans for next year -- whether that be college, a gap year, work, or something else," Senior Class President Cameron Frank told the Hingham Anchor.
Flags, washable car paint, and other decorations are encouraged. "The purpose of the parade is to celebrate our class. While we have had to abandon some of the more traditional senior celebrations, this is one that we can pull off this year," Cameron said. "Last year, my friends and I stood along the parade route and cheered on the senior class and it was a lot of fun. They all had huge smiles on their faces as they drove by."
The entire Class of 2021 is excited to have something to look forward to. In years past, the whole community has been able to pack the bleachers at graduation to show their love and support for the graduating class, which unfortunately, won't be possible again this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.
"We would really appreciate widespread community support along the parade route, because it's a safe way to still be supportive and celebrate," Cameron said. "We're encouraging everyone to make a sign and to make some noise that day!"
