VIDEO: Claremore seniors hold barn prom for two amid coronavirus pandemic

INOLA, Okla. — Two high school seniors from Claremore were determined to have their prom -- even after it was canceled because of COVID-19 concerns.

Dakota Page and Chloe Zickefoose say they have been best friends for five years and had planned to go to prom together.

After Sequoyah High School’s prom was canceled, Page came up with the idea of having a barn prom for just the two of them.

With the help of their parents and Moore’s Flying M Ranch and Event Center, they put the prom together in just 24 hours.

“They really went all-out making this the best thing for me and Chloe -- it was really, really cool,” Paige says.

“There were lights set up, there balloons everywhere, we even had Chick-fil-A," Zickefoose says.

“It was perfect.”

They took dozens of pictures to remember the event, including some fishing. Page was just awarded the Oklahoma High School Bassmaster All-State for the third year in a row.

He will be fishing for the University of Central Oklahoma in the fall.

Zickefoose will be going to the University of Arkansas.
