Coral Shores High School graduates hopped onto truck beds and inside convertibles as they slowly rode on the Old Highway past family, friends and school staff for the annual graduate parade on May 17. First responders led the procession to the high school, where crowds awaited their beloved graduates. Some seniors showed off their new school colors, while others engaged in a bit of water gun warfare.
