Racine Post went to its first Post Prom this year and learned a few things ... (see over 100 photos from Post Prom here and here)
A LOT of work goes into this event ... great job by Rotary to pull this event off year after year. Students and adult volunteers worked on decorating Festival Hall.
Rotary's Chris Leberfing was chairman of the Post Prom committee. He started working on this year's event last October.
The theme of this year's Post Prom was "Around the World." Time-Warner cable was there interviewing members of the different schools' prom court and showing students as they walked down the red carpet.
It rained off and on throughout the night. A tent outside helped keep students dry as they were arriving. A few umbrellas helped, but most dates didn't seem to mind getting a little wet.
The crowd outside didn't mind. They cheered as the different schools entered, creating the Hollywood red carpet treatment that makes Racine's Post Prom famous.
Students, parents and even children took in the event.
People arrived in limos, cool cars and even a few boats.
Inside, couples were not shy in front of the TV cameras. White tuxes were popular this year. Time-Warner will be rebroadcasting Post Prom on Wisconsin On Demand Channel 1111 through June.
Mayor Becker made an understated appearance.
