Cheers, tears at HHS grad parade

1204

On Saturday the Hopkinton High School Class of 2020 finally got its chance to celebrate with a rolling rally through the streets of Hopkinton. The parade started and ended at the high school, passing all of the other schools in town along the route. Mother Nature cooperated with a warm, sunny day, and residents in town turned out in large numbers to pay tribute.

Above is the HCAM video taken from the start of the parade. Below is a video taken from a car in the parade, along with photos from the event. To see additional photos from before the parade, click here.
