NEWPORT, NY – The communities of Newport and Middleville held a prom parade for West Canada Valley juniors and seniors on Saturday.
The parade started at the Newport Town Barn and made its way through Middleville.
The students – some decked out in their prom attire – road on floats and in the back of pickup trucks.
They were escorted along the way by the Newport, Middleville, and Schuyler fire departments.
Chase Youngs, a senior at West Canada Valley, said the students just wanted to get together one last time before the end of the school year.
“We figured we would get together as a group of juniors and seniors and celebrate our prom because obviously our school did not have one due to COVID-19.”
There was even a photographer and DJ on hand to make it feel more like a real prom.
