WARREN, NJ - On Thursday night,  prom frenzy reached its peak as the Watchung Hills Regional High School Senior Prom was held at the Hyatt Regency in New Brunswick.

Promposals and preparations are done and it was time to enjoy a night of pictures, dancing, and most importantly, making memories before everyone embarks on the next chapter in their lives.

On Hazelwood Court in Warren, a 40 passenger “party bus” came to pick up the prom goers,  complete with a TV inside. Cars lined the street with kids and picture taking parents.

For many parents, the 2015 prom was just another reminder that their seniors will be graduating high school and packing for college in just a few short weeks.

On June 24 the same seniors who were seen off to prom will be embarking on the next chapter of their lives when they receive their Watchung Hills Regional High School Class of 2015 diplomas on Wednesday.

If you have photos you would like included, of promproposals, pre-prom, during prom, post-prom and any well wishes or quotes, email them to bnemcek@tapinto.net
