Hundreds of decorated cars filled with eager graduates and their families lined up at Hall High School to celebrate their graduation. 

For 25 minutes, a seemingly endless number of cars, accompanied by a police escort, cruised down West Hartford’s North Main Street. Many honked and cheered out to the onwatching spectators, who were littered throughout different pockets of the parade’s route, which snaked and slithered between North Main Street, Albany Avenue, Prospect Avenue, and Fern Street. 

It’s impossible to know with any kind of certainty how many cars and families participated, but it seemed to be at least 250, many in cars adorned with balloons, decorations, and even college stickers. 

Conard High School also held its graduation parade Monday evening. A plane, trailing a “Congratulations Class of 2020” banner, flew over both the Conard and Hall parades.

The parade is part of a greater program of graduation events held by Hall, and the school’s official commencement ceremony, delivered in drive-by movie format, will be held on June 25 at the Farmington Polo Grounds.

Congratulations to the Class of 2020!
