McKeesport Area promenade showcases 118 couples

Friday, May 23, 2014, 3:26 a.m.
 

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.”
