RACINE — The organizers of Racine’s legendary promenade want local teens to remember that Racine Founders Rotary Club Post Prom is still on during the pandemic, even if it won’t take its normal form this Saturday.
The pandemic-adapted tradition still includes a red carpet walk, this year at the Racine Zoo, and professional photos will be taken afterward outside Festival Hall while circus performers, including trapeze artists and stilt walkers to go along with “The Greatest Showman” theme, perform.
The times when students from each school should arrive at Racine Zoo and then go to Festival Hall can be found at: rotarypostprom.com.
Fifty guests will also receive a free small-scale red carpet to take home, courtesy of Carpetland.
As usual, the festivities will be televised starting at 8 p.m. online using prerecorded footage from the day and live looks at the virtual dance.
Shoutouts from surprise local and potentially international celebrities will also be aired honoring this year’s unique class of high school graduates.
Co-organizer Sara Luther said that “hundreds” of teens are still signed up for the now-free event. Registration has been extended through Friday at bit.ly/3fxKxlF.
Making a scene
Little man on the red carpet
Flashing some dough
Where'd he go?
Always trust the young man in the blue tux
Laughing our way into prom
Flamingo-ing our way in
Roses for her, roses for him
Go for gold
This prom queen is on fire
A full bouquet
Rockin' the Crocs
Two words: Top. Hat.
