Camden Hills to hold vehicle version of March Thru Town

May 18, 2020

Camden — One of the most cherished Camden Hills Regional High School graduation traditions is the annual March Thru Town that is associated with Baccalaureate. Business owners, families, and community members gather in the streets in downtown Camden to congratulate and cheer for the graduating class. The school worked with local law enforcement about how it could pull this off this year in a way that adheres to the governor’s pandemic guidelines.

The entire community is invited to come be a part of this tradition to help make it extra special for this year’s seniors. This will be a totally vehicular event this year, for both graduates, their families, and the community. Graduates and their families will drive in a long procession of cars being led by the class marshals. We ask graduating seniors to be in the front passenger seat of the vehicle and all members of the community who want to spectate should park on the right-hand side of the road in the direction of the procession. Spectators should remain in their vehicles at all times. We encourage spectators to make signs, bring cowbells, and be prepared to do a lot of cheering.

The procession will begin at approximately 7 p.m. Friday, June 12. The procession of cars will begin at the Knox Mill parking lot where families will arrive by 6:30 p.m. and get organized to begin the convoy of cars. The “March” will begin at the top of Elm Street (Main Street) by the library and head down the hill. The procession will go through downtown, take a left onto Union Street by Village Variety, go out Union through downtown Rockport, across the bridge, and take a right onto West Street. It will end at the intersection of Route 90 and West Street where police will be directing traffic.

We encourage community members to come celebrate with this year’s graduating seniors.
