Senior Graduation Parade 2021

The City of Mill Creek wants to recognize all graduating seniors in the Mill Creek community by organizing a graduation parade procession at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 12, 2021. This has been a difficult year for the graduates of 2021 as the pandemic virus has canceled so many of their traditional recognition events.

The parade is a way to celebrate students during this difficult year and celebrate their ability to overcome the obstacles from the pandemic.  The parade capacity is limited to 250 cars for all graduating seniors in the Mill Creek area. The parade route is approximately seven miles long and begins at Jackson High School,
1508 136th St. SE, in Mill Creek. The route will end at the intersection of Mill Creek Boulevard and Bothell-Everett Highway (SR 527).
Seniors are encouraged to decorate their vehicles for the parade with balloons, glass chalk or window paint, poster boards, etc. Community members are asked to cheer on the students as they drive by and to decorate their homes.
Home window signs are available for community members on the City’s website to print and display at their homes. Signs will include various school crests, and offer an easy for our residents to show support for our graduates.
The City of Mill Creek recommends a parent, or non-graduating student drive, so graduates may participate in waving and enjoy the parade route as a passenger. Students are welcome to carpool together and follow COVID-19 safety guidelines.
Register your car for the parade at the Senior Graduates Parade on the SignUpGenius website. All participants will be able to complete a waiver at check-in.
  • NOTE: All passengers in the car must complete this waiver.
