On Friday, June 5, Port Richmond’s seniors attended the night they were all waiting for, their senior prom at the Hilton Garden Inn. With a Masquerade theme, seniors arrived wearing their unique masks with their prom dresses and tuxedos. Everyone arrived at the Hilton at around 6:45-7 p.m. The Prom actually started when the seniors were brought into the Nicotra’s Ballroom. At around 8 p.m., the seniors danced and ate the dinner of their choice. Along with the dancing and the food, seniors took a lot of pictures; with their phones and/or by professional photographers. The night ended at midnight, but the memory of the night will last forever.
