From there the graduates move to rented flat bed trucks or fancy cars and continue the dance party. The trucks are decorated and are essentially a mobile dance club which drives through town honking their horns and playing music with graduates hanging off the trucks, singing and dancing.
You can literally hear them from miles away. And you hear it all day, every day, for about a couple of weeks as different school have different graduation dates. This mobile party seems completely dangerous to me, but what do I know? It happens all over Sweden every year. After the mobile disco ends you may see graduates running through the more populated parts of town in groups singing, dancing, yelling, blowing horns and whistles and chanting through megaphones.
Some members of the group carry boomboxes and they lead the group like the Pied Piper keeping the party going. I was having lunch in a main square the other day and my friend and I could not hear each other over all the noise. Also common are pranks around town — silly things like jumping in public fountains to cool off and sober up?? After the truck ride and run through town, the graduates return home to friends and family waiting to celebrate the student with more festivities well into the night.
During the day I ran into my son who was graduating the following year. I think he is ok with embracing this new tradition though. Traveler, explorer, photographer, writer, blogger. Raised on promises. She couldn't help thinkin' that there was a little more to life somewhere else.

I think I might just start a campaign to begin that tradition here in Australia ready for when my kids graduate high school.Jul 02, · You'd be surprised by how many international hit songs are sung by Swedes.
