Along the orange carpet

On Saturday, May 18, Wayland High School students attended the Class of 2025 Prom. Before heading to the prom venue, the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge, students met at WHS for the Orange Carpet, which lasted from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.. Typically, the Orange Carpet is held outdoors at WHS, however, due to speculation of rainy weather, Orange Carpet was held inside the field house. Prom-goers walked down the carpet with their dates. During the Orange Carpet, parents and friends gathered to take photos of students as they walked through the field house. At the conclusion of the Orange Carpet, students were breathalyzed by WHS administrators before boarding buses to go to the venue.

Inside the Hyatt Regency

The prom venue was located at the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge. Before dancing, attendees ate a three course meal. The appetizer was a Caesar salad with bread. Students could choose between teriyaki chicken with sautéed vegetables or pasta for their main course. Finally, the desert was a chocolate mousse cake. “My favorite thing about prom was seeing everyone dressed up and interacting with other students, whether it was on the bus or dance floor,” junior Salma Dwidar said. “It was a great time and a great opportunity to socialize with everyone.”

Late night

Once prom came to an end, some prom attendees returned back to the WHS field house for “Late Night,” which is organized annually by the Wayland Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). The event started at 11 p.m. and ended at 1:30 a.m.. There were several food options, including Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, pizza, Chinese food and cake. There were also some activities, such as an inflatable race course, pickle ball, video games and corn hole. “My favorite activity from late night was the big bouncy house where you got to race people,” sophomore Annie Melander said. “It was super fun to go against my friends and try the course out.”
