With Prom being just over 70 days away, the Class of 2019 has decided on a location. At a recent class meeting, it was announced that prom will be taking place at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Old Town, Alexandria on April 6.

“The Torpedo Factory was chosen as the venue because Old Town is super pretty so it is good for pictures,” senior Class of 2019 President Efrata Tecle said. “There are a lot of restaurants and places to eat as well.”

Formerly a naval munitions factory that was converted into an art center, the Torpedo Factory is a popular venue for various events including receptions, weddings and events such as prom.

“It is an all around good central location to take pictures to take pictures, eat and go to prom without much of a hassle for transportation,” Tecle said.

It is expected that tickets will cost approximately $50, however the Class of 2019 board is attempting to reduce costs through fundraising. Donations to the Class of 2019 can be made here.

Now with a reserved venue, the Class of 2019 board is beginning to plan out decorations and themes for the event.

“The theme we are going to be looking at this year is an enchanted garden featuring cherry blossoms because cherry blossoms will be at their peak at the time that prom will be taking place,” Tecle said.

With prom being a one-time experience for students, many are looking forward to attending in the Spring.

“I’m most looking forward to hopefully seeing everybody enjoy themselves at an event that we have been working on planning for months,” Tecle said.
