With a red carpet covering the parking lot at Scarsdale High School, seniors made quite the entrance Thursday afternoon at their pre-prom event.
Although cloudy skies were seen overhead hours before the celebration, the forecast cleared up just in time for the photo opportunity.
With the girls dressed in elegant gowns and the boys looking classy in a variety of tuxedos, students and family members enjoyed a bit of nostalgia as elementary school pictures and their freshman yearbook photos were displayed next to the red carpet.
Langston Willis, a senior attending the prom, commented, "It's lovely, everyone looks amazing and I'm looking forward to having a lot of fun."
While most high schools have no involvement with private pre-prom gatherings, Scarsdale High School creates one community-wide event for all to attend.
"They're all here in one place instead of being scattered at 10 or 12 different homes," said Bruce Henry, co-senior class advisor and math teacher. "It's nice that they're all together."
Davida Goldstein, whose daughter was attending the prom, followed the same sentiment. "All the parents and family get to see each other," he said. "Everyone gets to be involved and that's what's so great about it."
After photos and goodbyes, students headed out on buses to the Trump National Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor for a prom night filled with unforgettable memories.
"It's a lot of fun because they come all dressed up and look glamorous," said Maria Valentin, co-senior class advisor and social studies teacher. "Everyone in the community comes out and it's just a nice way to celebrate our seniors."
