Seniors at Loris High School are invited to take part in “Last Ride” festivities through downtown Tuesday evening, just ahead of their scheduled 9 a.m. commencement Wednesday at Heniford Field on campus.
“All family, friends and community are encouraged to come line the sidewalks of Main Street to cheer the class of 2021,” said Jenny Gore, one of the event organizers.
Seniors will begin lining up vehicles to be decorated at 7 p.m. in the grassy lot on the corner of Casey Street and Meeting Street. Pizza and cupcakes provided by parents will be offered to them.
Cruising on Main Street is set to begin at 7:30 p.m., and continue for an hour. A guest speaker is expected to give the class special send-off from Courtyard on Main.
“Music will be played during the ride and there will be less restrictions that there were last year because of the pandemic,” Gore said. “We encourage everyone to come out and support our seniors.”
Jenny joined her husband, Carolina Entertainment of Loris owner Kyle Gore, presenting the idea to the Loris Chamber of Commerce and Mayor Todd Harrelson, extending the event that launched a year ago as the COVID-19 pandemic raged.
