Thanks to for use of the photos!

The Vigilante Cruise 2020 has been created to provide the students from Helena High and Capital High a positive way to continue a 96-year old Helena tradition, while staying within the current Covid-19 guidelines. Live streaming video will be provided by local TV outlets, so spectators won’t even have to leave their homes. The route has been expanded to allow for social distancing and be able to honk & wave at folks in their homes, businesses and retirement facilities along the route. The students have had their school year torn apart, especially the seniors. No sports, prom, greatly restricted graduation festivities and many other traditional activities. For many students, this will be the last time they will see their classmates. This is an amazing opportunity to give them one last great memory and a place in Helena history. Students may decorate their street legal vehicles or utility trailers. Everyone must stay in their vehicles. There will be no walking, equestrian entries or large semi’s so as to keep the cruise moving. All rules of the road must be observed.
