Call it a mobile party with about 300 guests of honor.
So it was Saturday morning as Dixon High School celebrated the Class of 2020 with a parade through the city followed by a final stop at the school, where they received their received their diplomas before heading off into the next big chapter of their lives.
The event kicked off at 7:30 a.m. at Hall Park, where the graduating class queued up in vehicles festooned with streamers, balloons, photo likenesses and more. It would be an hour and a half before the parade would begin, giving the seniors time to reconnect with friends they haven’t seen since March, when school shut down due to COVID-19 concerns.
