Manhattan Paints Town Orange to Honor Seniors This Saturday
Manhattan is painting the town orange for the 2020 graduates! The town is inviting residents, businesses, and community members to celebrate this year's Seniors by showing their Tiger pride.
The town is asking locals to display orange light bulbs, decorate with banners, signs, and Tiger themed storefronts. Then on Saturday, the Seniors will assemble in their cars followed by parents, friends, and families, and parade through town. Anyone is welcome to rally together and show support for this amazing group of kids who have had their senior year altered by COVID-19.
The rally will be lead by a special escort and make it's way up/down Broadway in Manhattan beginning at 3 p.m. Spectators are welcome to watch, cheer, and make noise for the Seniors but are asked to stay socially distant.
The Car Rally will line up at 2:30 p.m. in the dirt parking lot across from Manhattan Area Counseling at 324 E. Main Street. 2020 Seniors will also be able to enjoy Free ice cream along the car rally route.
