Cruisers attend Popps Ferry Elementary Cruisin’ the Coast parade

Popps Ferry Elementary School had some visitors drive by to celebrate America’s Largest Block Party.  These cruisers volunteered to help bring some Cruisin’ spirit to the kids.

Popps Ferry Elementary brought Cruisin’ the Coast to their students by having a parade at their school.

Assistant Principal Jennifer Seymour says the school has been prepping for the parade all week by getting the kids excited by dressing up in different decades, starting from the 80s down to the 50s.

After the parade, the students did other fun activities that involved going back in time. Principal Seymour said, “The kids are going to learn how to do some old school dancing here in the auditorium. We will rotate through where we will have a color contest where they get to design their own hot rides and they will also get to sample root beer floats.”

Not only did the kids get candy and beads in the parade, but they had the chance to get up close and personal with some antique cars. Cruiser Julie Bocek said, “We love bringing it to the kids. We want to get those cruisers, the young cruisers started right.”

Cruiser Tim Bocek said, “It’s a piece of American history that we wish to share with the children.”

With the biggest event on the Coast happening, the school based their lessons on hands-on experiences to go along with their studies. Principal Seymour said, “To see the community come in and know that this is an event for the community and realizing that our kids are a part of that, supporting them, showing up. We had a great turn out and we are so thankful that they came out today.”
