A night on the Mississippi

On Friday night, May 18th, 500 of Highland’s students danced the night away on the Mississippi River. The Boat Dance was open to students at 6:30 pm, on Friday, at Harriet Island, on the West side of Saint Paul, MN. The boat took off around 7:15 pm and returned to Harriet Island at 10 pm.

The dance has been a Highland tradition for many years, and by the number of students that attended this year, it will continue to be a tradition for many more years in Highland’s future. This year, the dance had the most attendees it’s had in years – so many that the school couldn’t continue selling tickets – filling up both of the boat’s capacity of people pretty quickly.

There were two different boats for student’s to enjoy; one boat was for the people who wanted to dance, and the other boat was for the people who preferred to sing karaoke with friends or sit back and watch others sing. No matter what boat you were on, there were dozens of different groups of people who were making the best of their night for themselves, their friends, and others around them.

If you chose not to, or were unable to attend the dance this year, make sure to attend Boat Dance 2019! Hopefully, the boat’s attendance remains high throughout the rest of its years at Highland, and hopefully the energy of the attendees remains the same as well!
