Jayhawk-Linn High School juniors and seniors and their dates converged on the Linn County Fairgrounds on Saturday for an evening of dancing and fun.

Despite temperatures in the mid-40s and a gusty northernly breeze, the walk-in went off as planned with parents, siblings, grandparents and friends huddled in coats to watch prom-goers arrive in style.

The gentlemen didn't seem to mind wearing jackets to ward off the cold. But the ladies, not wanting to let the end-of-the-school-year dance strike a sour fashion note, for the most part opted not to cover bare shoulders or cramp their style as their prom gowns delighted the crowd of onlookers.

Cooper Johnson and Adison Randall pause during the walk-in for photos by friends and relatives.

This group is bundled warmly for taking photos of the prom-goers.
