Saturday is a special night for many area high schoolers as prom gets underway. With prom comes the prom photos.
A lot of those students came out to Riverside Park in La Crosse to use the scenery in those photos. This has become quite the tradition for many area students.
They say it's a beautiful scene that's not available to all students in the country so they want to show it off.
"It's very pretty over here," La Crescent junior James Anthony said. "It's a cute water scene and a good back drop that me and my girls would like."
"The grass is green, the water is blue," La Crescent junior Jada Brennan said. "There's people all around. It's just an amazing place to come and take picture with all your friends."
Students said they were excited to attend prom with friends and create the memories for a lifetime.
