MARFA — Families and friends of the Marfa High School Class of 2020, along with community members, are invited to honor this year’s graduating class during a parade this Friday evening, May 15. The parade begins at 7:30 p.m.
Marfa ISD and the Marfa Police Department ask parade attendees to park along the parade route, remain in their vehicles and practice social distancing guidelines at all times. Parking spots for each graduate’s immediate family will be reserved along the west side of the County Courthouse. All other parking spots along the parade route are open to the public.
Seniors will be driven in decorated vehicles and will proceed from the high school headed east down Lincoln Street. The parade will turn north to go all the way around the courthouse, then continue south down Highland Avenue, turning west on Oak Street where the parade will end.
Music, announcements, and senior highlights will be broadcast live on KRTS at 93.5 FM and streamed at marfapublicradio.org. The school will also stream the event live on the Marfa Shorthorns Facebook page.
Following the parade, KRTS will air a special hour-long program of dance music put together by the MHS junior class to honor the graduating seniors. Everyone is invited to tune in to 93.5 to join the socially-distanced afterparty.
