[May 22, 2020]  LINCOLN - With no official graduation gathering this year, Lincoln Community High School organized a vehicle parade through town for its seniors on Saturday morning. The parade ran from the Logan County Fairground to downtown by way of Woodlawn Road, Keokuk and Kickapoo Streets.

More than 100 cars gathered fairground as large numbers of spectators assembled along the parade route in preparation for the Class of 2020 Senior Parade.

Large and small signs along the parade route wished students congratulations. Cars were decorated with signs, balloons, and photo posters of the graduates. Some of the students drove themselves through the parade. Parents or family members drove others. Seniors were in the back of pick-up trucks, in convertibles and even standing inside vehicles with their heads out the sunroofs.

The Lincoln Police Department escorted with several Logan County Fire departments bringing up the rear.

A quick trip around the Logan County Courthouse Square was made before the cars proceeded to the high school via Kickapoo and Wyatt Avenue.
