Thundering cheers echoed down McCarty Lane in San Marcos on May 29 as an army of high school seniors wearing caps and gowns paraded down the street on flashy rides.

Faced with the coronavirus pandemic, parents from San Marcos High School joined forces to organize a senior parade to honor their Rattler graduates.

The graduation ceremony for San Marcos High School seniors has been postponed until at least July 17 due to coronavirus concerns.

The parent-led parade started at noon at San Marcos High School. The parade traveled down Rattler Road and then onto McCarty Lane. It then looped back around before hitting I-35 on a route back to San Marcos High School.

The parade lasted for about an hour, but the proud parents, friends and family members did not stop cheering for their 2020 graduates until the last car was out of sight.
