The Class of 2023 at Davie County High School will cross the stage at War Eagle Stadium on Saturday morning.

The ceremony starts at 8:30 a.m., and gates open at 7 a.m. Rain date is Sunday at 8:30.

While the ceremony is typically attended by family and close friends, there is a chance on Friday for all members of the community to show their pride in the class members, as well as give those class members another chance to show off.

The Senior Parade will leave the Davie Community Park on US 601 South in Mocksville at 6 p.m. Friday, traveling on Main Street through Downtown Mocksville, and on US 158 to Farmington Road, and on to the school, where it will disband.

The parade will feature the seniors driven in private vehicles, many decorated. Davie Sheriff’s units will escort the parade.

Community members are invited to line the routes and offer congratulations on their own, from signs to cheers.
