In a reprise of the successful event that was launched in 2020, members of the Conard High School Class of 2021 paraded through West Hartford in a graduation caravan of several hundred cars, many of which were decked out in style – sporting Conard colors or the colors of future colleges the students will attend.

Led by the West Hartford Fire Department and West Hartford Police Department, and a car carrying Principal Julio Duarte, the parade began at Conard and ended at Webster Hill Elementary School. In between it wound through the Duffy Elementary School neighborhood, down Boulevard and South Main Street before turning onto Webster Hill Boulevard.

Supporters – including a group of teachers – lined the route, cheering, holding up signs and ringing cowbells as the caravan passed by, car horns honking and soon-to-be grads waving.

Conard’s commencement ceremony for the Class of 2021 will take place Tuesday, June 15, outdoors on the baseball field.

Hall High School also held its graduation parade Sunday evening.

Congratulations to the Class of 2021!
