STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-May 28, 2020-Steamboat Springs High School is holding a private graduation ceremony tomorrow, Friday, May 29 in the afternoon at the Meadows Parking Lot of the Steamboat Ski Resort to celebrate the Class of 2020.
As part of the festivities, a parade of approximately 130 vehicles lead by Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue’s tower truck will take place after the drive-in event.
Around 4pm, the procession will depart the Meadows Lot like winter ski shuttles and head up Mt. Werner Circle to Village Drive and then down Walton Creek Road to US40.
During this portion, the Steamboat Springs Police Department will stop traffic at several intersections in the mountain area so the procession can proceed without interruption to the intersection of Walton Creek and US40.
Once parade vehicles transition onto US40, there will be no further police assistance and traffic should adhere to normal traffic regulations as they make their way through downtown Steamboat Springs. Drivers should anticipate delays in the mountain area during this time as well as additional heavy volumes through the downtown area.
“We’d urge extra caution and vigilance from everyone on the road during the parade procession,” commented Police Sergeant Shane Musgrave with the Steamboat Springs Police Department. “Remember, a lot can happen quickly if drivers are distracted even for an instance, so please celebrate safely. On behalf of the entire department, congratulations to the Class of 2020.”
People interested in watching the procession are advised to not park along Mt. Werner Circle or where they could obstruct traffic or hinder visibility. In addition, please practice physical distancing and wear a mask.
