Each vehicle was allowed only one student per vehicle, with the parade starting promptly at 6 p.m. Leading the parade was the Monroe City Police Department, who also stopped traffic for the parade to be held. There were vehicles decorated in black and gold colors with photos, balloons and memorabilia of their high school years. As the graduates passed by everyone waved and little ones gathered the sweet treats thrown. The parade ended with a few graduates riding their horses, including Ava Gottman, Alicia Heineke and Will Crain.
