Parade for local HS Grads set for Thursday, June 4th
Join us in celebrating Portland’s Class of 2020 (PHS and St. Pat's) with a local Graduate Parade! The parade will begin promptly at 6:30 pm. Seniors are welcome to wear caps, gowns, and decorate their vehicles.
The Valedictorian & Salutatorian will line up first for the parade.
Spectators are encouraged to enjoy the parade and cheer our seniors along the route, while practicing social distancing. Wearing face masks is encouraged for spectators.
Let's give this class a Portland Community send off for them to remember!
Students will line up in their vehicles on the corner of Hill Street and Danby Street (stretching back toward Oakwood Elementary). Parade route will start down Hill Street, right on Kent Street, left on Grand River, right on Water Street, continuing up Lyons Road, left onto Service Drive by the High School, past PHS, left onto Ionia Road, right onto West Street, and then will end with a drive past St. Patrick's School.
This is a community event to celebrate our Portland Public School & St. Patrick Catholic School graduates. Decorations and participation in the parade must incorporate the graduation theme and be appropriate for all ages.
