SPARTA, NJ – If you were out and about around 4 p.m. on Thursday you could probably guess it was the day of the  Sparta High School prom.  With 20-30 cars or more parked on both sides of the street in some neighborhoods, limos and party buses driving around and gowned girls, boys with boutonnieres and parents with cameras swarming the Lake Mohawk Country Club board walk, the clues were hard to miss. 

The young ladies and gentlemen had picture perfect weather for their big night.

Please enjoy the photos.  Please send your photos to  jdericks@tapinto.net and they will be added to this story.
