Because of COVID-19 concerns Coffee County Central High School held a “Parade of Graduates in 2020 and 2021,” but this year the normal ceremony returns to Carden-Jarrell Field (weather permitting) at 7 p.m. on May 27, 2022.
For everyone that have enjoyed the senior parade will be happy to know that on Monday, May 23 the parade will be held. The event will basically be in reverse from the previous two years.
The parade will be leaving CHS at 6 p.m. and traveling on State Route 55, going through downtown Manchester and then onto Raider Academy.
- Turn left on US Highway 41, traveling southbound (wrong way lanes) to Spring Street.
- Turn right onto Spring St.
- Turn Left onto Main St.
- Turn right onto Irwin St.
- Turn right on to Fort St.
- Turn right onto Woodland St.
- Turn left onto Highway 41 (northbound (wrong way lanes).
- Turn left at Highway 41 and 55 toward Raider Academy
- Turn left into CCRA entrance
*Traveling in the “wrong way” lanes on Hwy. 41 will prevent the parade from crossing itself. Manchester Police will have that section of Hwy. 41 completely closed to thru traffic during the parade.
Citizens that are wanting to cheer on graduates are asked to lineup off the roadway. If you are not participating, please seek an alternate route.
