Around 120 graduates took part in the event, held on a hot summer day with temperatures reaching around 32 degrees. Volunteers were on hand to make sure everyone had a cold bottle of water, and police and fire personnel helped to keep the flow of traffic going with over 1,000 vehicles estimated to have driven the parade route over two hours.

The virtual grad ceremonies were held on line on Saturday evening.
