INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- The on-off rain and thunderstorms stopped just long enough Saturday for Brecksville-Broadview Heights High School students to stay dry as they arrived for prom.

The event was at Embassy Suites by Hilton in Independence. This year’s theme was, “Bal De Promo,” which means “prom” or “prom night party” in French. Students checked in at tables marked “Notre Dame Cathedral” and “Palace of Versailles.” 

Erin Lake, prom coordinator and teacher in the Brecksville-Broadview Heights district, said the high school has chosen Embassy Suites for prom several years in a row.

“It fits a lot of people, and we have 444 students coming to prom this year,” Lake said. “And the hotel has been great every year -- great food and service.”
