Car parade for seniors wheeling in today

It’s time for seniors to get their cars decorated and get ready to ride.

The Class of 2021 senior car parade will take place this Sunday, May 23.

Vehicles will start lining up at 1 p.m. at the Warren County High School student parking lot, and the parade will begin at 2 p.m.

Said organizer Tanarra Grissom, “We did a Sunday because everybody’s so busy on Saturday and during the week, and then of course graduation is that coming Friday night, May 28, and a lot of kids are going to do Project Graduation and then leave for their senior trip. So we thought we needed to get it done before graduation.”

The parade will start at the high school and travel down Morrison Street, go through downtown on Main Street, and end at Pioneer Pediatrics, where Main Street and Sparta Street intersect.

Cash prizes will be given to the seven best decorated vehicles. Candy and other objects are prohibited from being thrown from automobiles. 

Furthermore, no floats, trailers, or motorcycles will be allowed, and persons will not be allowed to ride or stand in the beds of trucks.

The event, which is in its second annual iteration, is sponsored by the 2021 Project Graduation board. It is a way to celebrate high school seniors and their accomplishments, and to send those graduating seniors off in style.

Grissom estimates there were about 100 cars in last year’s inaugural senior parade, and she is hoping for a good turnout again this year.

Grissom invites the public “to come and cheer on the seniors along the parade route.”
