CLEVELAND, Ohio - University Circle’s Cleveland Botanical Garden was the setting Saturday for the Westlake High School senior prom. Heavy rains caused flooding earlier in the day, but the sun broke out just as students arrived for the big event.

“I’m happy for all the kids,” said Principal Paul Wilson, when speaking about the weather. “I was worried all day how the weather would be. I’m glad it got better in time.”

In all, the prom attracted 326,  while 290 are expected for the after-prom, which will take place at Westlake High and will last until 2 a.m. -- Jeff Piorkowski
