Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - No parking tonight at the Island Park Parking ramp, but there is a party going on right now. This is no ordinary school dance.

The event was open to all students from grades 9 through 12, from any high school. Students came as far as Wahpeton to attend the dance.

The group called "YO," started by Oak Grove student Joe Burgum sponsored the event. It aims to offer teens safe and healthy alternative ways to spend their weekend nights.

“A lot of people that are on my team that helped me to get to this point, without them it would not have happened. I would guarantee it, but I’m excited to see how the evening goes. Once it gets dark, it should start to pick up.”

Burgum says he is already trying to plan the next event, a casino night at Trollwood Park.
