McKeesport Area promenade showcases 118 couples
McKeesport Area High School's parking lot was filled with hundreds of spectators on Thursday afternoon as 118 couples crossed an outdoor stage for the annual prom promenade.
Students showed off formal fashions for friends, family and community members before heading into Pittsburgh for their “From This Moment” themed ball and after-party aboard the Gateway Clipper.
The promenade is one of many district events that draws guests from all areas of McKeesport, White Oak, Dravosburg, Versailles and South Versailles Township. Promoting the “Once a Tiger, Always a Tiger” bond, the event brings out folks who just want to see what McKeesport Area kids are wearing this year.
“I love it,” senior class president Lena Kline said, looking out into a crowd of familiar faces. “This is our last big moment together before graduation. Everything about this night is special.”

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
