Po-Hi Prom tonight
Ponca City Now - April 14, 2015 4:25 pm
The 2015 Ponca City High School Prom will be held tonight at the Marland Mansion. The Grand March will begin at 7 p.m.
The theme of the 2015 Ponca City High School Prom is “Great Gatsby” and the colors are gold, black and white.
The Prince and Princess Po-Hi candidates will promenade at the finale of the Grand March and the coronation will immediately follow.
In case of inclement weather, the school will announce any change in plans by 6 p.m. on Saturday evening and will be posted on www.PoncaCityNow.com.
If a change in venue is required due to the weather, the Grand March will take place in Robson Field House. Due to limited space, each Prom attendee is given two “rain-out” tickets for guests to watch the Grand March.
Please be aware that parking at the Marland Mansion is limited to students attending Prom and Prom security only.
In an attempt to get students through the March in a timely fashion, guests are asked not to cause the students to pause for long periods of time for photos.
The coronation will take place immediately following the Grand March, so please be courteous and wait until it concludes before anyone leaves their seat. Please remember to respect the mansion grounds by keeping your area clean. Please wait to leave your seat until the coronation has ended.
