Prom was at Palladium St. Louis in Lafayette Square on April 25. Doors opened at 8 p.m. and ended at 11 p.m.

The Palladium St. Louis is known for its fusion between old world and contemporary design which could room up to 700 people.

There was an appetizer and cupcake buffet and any vegan and students with allergies were told to inform the Activities Office.

Entry to prom was $55, and school ID’s were the tickets this year.

Before prom senior Alex Dickerson said, “I can’t wait for prom! I’m planning on getting my tux at Men’s Warehouse and pulling up in a nice car or limousine. After prom I want to celebrate the end of the year more with my friends.”

Junior and senior girls shopped for their prom dresses by the Internet or clothing stores.

Shops like David’s Bridal, Robin’s Bridal, Macy’s, Dillard’s, or Nordstrom’s were sources this year for prom dresses. The prom dress code was billed as formal and the normal school dress code was enforced.

Last year, 351 students went to prom at the Hilton at the Ballpark.
