Prom 2009 at Le Mars Community High School goes with the theme "Psychedelic" this Saturday, May 2.
It will be a look back at the '60s and '70s for students at their promenade, dance and after prom activities, according to Kris DeRocher, who along with committees of parents of juniors and seniors have put together a fun night for students.
Members of the junior class are charge of decorations for prom.
The promenade will start at 5:30 p.m. in Carey Gymnasium and is open to the public. There is a $2 admission at the door.
Line-up for prom-goers who plan to participate in the promenade is at 4:30 p.m. in the high school cafeteria.
The prom dance will be held at the Le Mars Convention Center, with dancing from 8:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.
The after-prom activities will take place at the middle school commons area from midnight to 4 a.m.
Students may check in at after-prom starting at midnight, but no later than 1 a.m. Anyone leaving the after-prom activities will not be allowed back in.
There will be a number of activities including karaoke, a hypnotist and games. There will also be drawings for prizes and $50 cash drawings throughout the night. To win, students must stay until the end of after-prom.
"This is the second year we are also giving scholarships to students as part of after-prom prizes," DeRocher said.
Five scholarships will be given this year. Students must stay to the end of the after-prom activities to be eligible.
