Beverly Bryant - April 17, 2019 9:44 am

The 2019 Ponca City High School Prom will be held Saturday, April 20, at the Marland Mansion.

The Grand March will begin at 6 p.m. The Theme this year is “Roaring ’20s” and the colors are red and gold. 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 to KLOR 99.3 FM, and KPNC 100.7 FM (Team  Radio stations) and Sunny 104.7 FM by 5 p.m. Saturday.

If a change in venue is required due to the weather, the Grand March will take place at Robson Field House. Due to limited space, each prom attendee is given two “rain-out” tickets for two guests to watch the Grand March. Please be aware that parking is limited to students attending prom and prom security only.

The 2019 prom sponsors appreciate Ponca City community members who support and watch the Grand March. In an attempt to get students through the March in a timely fashion, please do not cause students to pause for long periods of time for photographs. The coronation will take place immediately following the Grand March, so please be courteous and wait until it concludes before leaving your seat. Please respect the Marland Mansion grounds by keeping the area clean.
