Oxford High School’s annual Winter Formal dance took place on Jan. 23, from 8 p.m. to midnight at the Powerhouse, and about 600 students attended the event in downtown Oxford.  Due to a threat of snow and icy roads on the night of the dance, there were worries beforehand that the dance may not be able to take place.  However, the snow and ice melted enough that the dance was able to occur.

“It was a little more stressful than it usually would have been because of the whole threat of snow, so we didn’t really know when we were gonna be able to decorate,” Student Body President Kaylee Norris said.

The theme this year was Winter Wonderland, and the OHS Student Council decorated the dance with snowflakes, white table clothes, fake snow, white christmas trees, fake branches,  hula hoop/branch chandeliers, a polaroid photo-booth, and a hot chocolate bar. The Student Council and the PTO combined their efforts to cater the event.

“Decorating lasted for about 5, 6 hours, so it was definitely a process, but it was very fun this year,” Norris said.  “I know a lot more people danced this year which was a good thing. … We also had probably a record high number of people who came, so I think it went really well.”
