PORT TOWNSEND — Port Townsend High School seniors and their families will parade through Port Townsend in their vehicles this afternoon before the graduation ceremony tonight.
The serpentine through town starts at Blue Heron Middle School, 3939 San Juan Ave., at 5 p.m. and ends at the Cotton Building on Water Street.
Organizers hope to see community members lining the street to support the graduating seniors.
Those participating in the parade will start staging at 4:15 p.m. at Blue Heron. There are no restrictions on the number of seniors and family vehicles in the parade, as long as the car is driven by a licensed driver, said Rebecca Krajewski, organizer.
Krajewski has a small gift card from a local business for the best decorated vehicle and has heard from families that people have personal banners, Redhawks flags and other decorations for their vehicles.
The route starts at Blue Heron, follows San Juan Avenue before turning left onto F Street, then turns right on Fir/Benton Street and heads towards the high school and turning right onto Lawrence Street until turning left onto Kearney Street, followed by a left at the traffic light and following Water Street to the Cotton Building.
