Dartmouth High School Class of 2020 Parade Creates Sea of Green [PHOTOS]
We've had a busy few weeks here at Fun 107. We kicked off our graduation parade tour last weekend in Fairhaven when the Blue Devils drew out virtually every resident in Acushnet and Fairhaven to cheer them on. Thousands lined the streets to cheer on the graduates on the gorgeous Sunday morning.
The tour continued on Friday afternoon for Somerset Berkley Regional High School. The Blue Raiders lined up in the St. Thomas More parking lot and partied to the sounds of a live DJ until it was time to start the parade. Before we got started, though, I hopped up on stage and got the horns beeping before we played the Somerset Berkley faculty and staff messages live on Fun 107.
Sunday morning, it was Dartmouth's turn. Green was the color of the day, as Class of 2020 Valedictorian Victor Gonsalves led his class in the parade. Victor's car was adorned with Dartmouth green and Harvard crimson because that's where he'll be attending this fall.
I'd give the Dartmouth students an "A" for the level of effort on their decorations. They went beyond green balloons out of the window. Some had flatbed trailers, some constructed caps that sat on top of their cars. It was quite impressive. Be sure to look through the entire parade photo album I put together below.
In case you missed it, here's audio of the DHS teachers and staff wishing the graduates luck on Fun 107. We played it on the air at 9am to kickoff the parade.
The Fun 107 Class of 2020 tour continues on June 18 when we celebrate New Bedford High School graduates that afternoon. The following evening, on June 19, we'll wrap up our tour with Old Rochester as the Bulldogs parade through Tri-Town in honor of the Class of 2020.
