On Thursday, June 10, seniors from Ridgefield High School are celebrating graduation with a car parade through town. Beginning at 5 p.m., students will be driving decorated cars from Union Ridge Elementary School (330 N. Fifth Avenue) to Ridgefield High School (2630 S. Hillhurst Road). 

Proud families drove their students in the 2020 car parade.

The public is encouraged to join us in celebrating the Class of 2021 by coming out and lining the sidewalks along the route and cheering for the graduates as they drive by.  Please follow all COVID protocols when attending the parade. 

Cars will depart from the front of Union Ridge, head west on Division Street, then turn south onto Main Avenue.  From there, they will make a left on Pioneer Street and drive east towards 9th Avenue, where they will turn right and head south towards Ridgefield High School (9th Avenue becomes Hillhurst Road). 

The parade will come in three waves to accommodate all of the students:

Wave 1 starts at 5:00 p.m.  It includes students with last names starting with letters A through G and the honor graduates (seniors in the top 3% of the graduating class).

Wave 2 starts at 5:30 p.m. for students with last names starting with letters H through N.

Wave 3 starts at 6:00 p.m. for students with last names starting with letters O through Z.

The number of attendees allowed for this year’s in-person graduation is limited due to COVID restrictions, so the car parade is an important part of the celebration. Come out to join us as we cheer for our 2021 graduates. Go Spuds!
