The scene opens on the morning of August 30, 2003, on Washington St. (former Business Rte. 66) in the block south of Postville Park in Lincoln, Illinois. Members of the Lincoln Community High School (LCHS) noble Class of 1960 gather to enter their float into the sesquicentennial parade celebrating the 150th anniversary of the founding of Lincoln, IL (the only town named by and for Abraham Lincoln before he became President). The float depicts the town's public recreation center of the 1950s and '60s (the "Rec"), where local youth went to meet and dance to the juke box and live bands. On the float, the Homecoming Queen, Judy Lohrenz Perkins, reigns. Some class members on the float form a band, while others dance. Some who worked on this float are members of the DCHA, a secret, all-male society focusing on school spirit and social satire. This clip also shows the parade getting underway.
