Dreary weather moved the festivities into the gymnasium, but gray skies couldn't dampen spirits Friday night for close to 200 Red Wing High School seniors participating in the school's 138th annual commencement exercise.

The crowd was all smiles -- and a few tears -- as parents, teachers and friends congratulated graduates with handshakes and hugs before the ceremony.
