CINCINNATI -- Lakota East High School didn't let a little power outage spoil their homecoming dance.

Instead, they improvised and held the event on their football field.

Principal Suzanna Davis said this year’s dance will be one she and her students will always remember.

“They were pumped. They said, ‘This was awesome, and there will never be another homecoming like this,’” Davis said.

The high school first tweeted they had lost power at about 3:20 p.m. Saturday.

They made the decision to have the dance on the football field by 5:30 p.m.

Parents and teachers took to Twitter to talk about a homecoming dance that won't soon be forgotten.
