Bremen students hosting "Barn Prom"


Between the cost of tickets, the dress, the tux, and maybe even a limo, prom can be pretty pricey. That's why some Bremen High School seniors decided to host their own.  

Seniors Joe Zeltwanger and Andrew Huff say this year they wanted to do something different. They call it "Barn Prom."

"We decided to give them two options as opposed to the prom to save some money," says Huff.

Bremen High School is throwing the official prom Saturday. Barn Prom is Friday. "We purposely didn't put it on the same day or try to rival them. We just wanted to do something on our own, we didn't want to threaten the prom," says Zeltwanger.

They've gone to prom plenty of times, but this year they're choosing Barn Prom over the official school prom. They say students can go to both, but their dance is unique. "It's obviously a lot cheaper, it's more casual, there's going to be a lot of kids from different schools," says Zeltwanger.

And Huff's dad, Max Huff, says it will be CLEAN fun. "Kids can come and have fun without alcohol so we're going to make sure that happens."

They will have over ten chaperones and even two police officers monitoring the prom. "To make it a good, clean party, so nothing gets out of control," says Andrew.

They have a DJ lined up, a stage built, lights hanging, and a bonfire area ready for a crowd. Freshman, Bryce Devine says he has been helping get "Barn Prom" ready. "I want to carry it on next year and the few years that I'm still in high school."

And for the seniors, they say this is exactly the way they want to celebrate their final prom and leave a mark on Bremen.

"Barn Prom" is open to any high school student, not just Bremen students. There is a five dollar fee at the door. It goes from 8-midnight Friday night. "Barn Prom" has a twitter account if you want to receive updates about the event.
