Last year May, Natick Public Schools staff celebrated students with a series of three car parades on different routes. This spring,, Natick High School’s Class of 2021 made it known earlier this year that they’d like to do the parading on the streets of town. This year’s graduates will get their wish on May 29 at 3pm, when a car parade featuring up to 400 vehicles will start to wind its way through Natick, with the blessing of NHS Principal Brian Harrigan, the Natick Police Department, and the Select Board.
The Natick Police Department has revealed the parade route, which will take participants from Natick High, down West Street, to South Main Street, a right on E. Central St., up Marion St., a right on Bacon St., a left on Oak St., a left on Pine St., a left on North Main St. to S. Main St., then back to the high school.
The total parade is expected to take about an hour. Students, who are not allowed to drive during the parade due to the excitement of it all, will be chauffeured by family or friends.
Graduates and their families will most certainly have their cars all decked out for the event, which is optional. The car parade is not a substitute for commencement ceremonies, which will take place on Fri., June 4, 7pm on Memorial Field. The rain date is Sun., June 6, 7pm on Memorial Field. The public is not invited to graduation.
The community is invited to line the parade route on May 29 to cheer the grads on.
