From a giant Jumbotron streaming live scenes of the Prom to A-List entertainers Questlove and DJ Pauly D, Pennsbury lived up to its reputation for putting on “The Best Prom in America” Saturday night. This year’s senior dance had it all - and then some. The evening began with a parade featuring more than 50 floats and vehicles celebrating this year’ Proms theme, “Yo Philly.” Couples rode aboard floats celebrating West Philly, the Philadelphia Art Museum, the Franklin Institute, South Street, the Magic Garden and even the Philadelphia International Airport, the Philadelphia Mint and the Christmas Village. Floats also celebrated the world-renowned Philadelphia Flower Show, the Channel 6 Dunkin’ Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade, Eastern State Penitentiary, the Chinese Lantern Festival, Spruce Street Harbor Park, the Philadelphia Zoo and many others. But the best was yet to come. Once inside the school, the seniors were immediately immersed in halls and rooms transformed by hundreds of volunteers into a tribute to the City of Brotherly Love. Three-D effects like the rotating LOVE/PROM sculpture and the giant Jumbotron inside the gym broadcasting live shots of the Prom and clips of Philly made for a memorable night. Earlier in the day, the community was invited inside the decorated high school to view the multi-room, three-dimensional, jaw-dropping tribute to the history, landmarks, sports teams, food and special events that make Philadelphia such a beloved destination.
