In between spring and summer, there’s another season on high school calendars across Long Island — prom season. It’s been going on for a few weeks now, from Amityville to Dix Hills to Rocky Point, and will conclude in about a week.

The fun and frolicking may end, but the memories linger. What did you wear? Who was your date? Where was the venue? Who was crowned prom king and queen?

Newsday has been catching up with former Long Island prom kings and queens. Walk down memory lane with them as they laugh at fond recollections, tell us where the crown is (at Mom’s house) and recall the surprise at hearing their names called.
