Carrollton Invites Ages 21+ to Totally Rad ‘80s-Themed Adult Prom
The City of Carrollton is bringing back the ‘80s so grab a date or a group of friends for a totally tubular trip down memory lane on Saturday, January 19 from 7:30-11 p.m. The Trinity Room at the Crosby Recreation Center (1610 E. Crosby Road) will send you back in time as it’s transformed into a 1980s prom to remember.
Dig through those boxes of old polaroids, send in your own high school prom photo, and take a chance at being selected as Carrollton’s First Annual Adult Prom King or Queen. Finalists will be voted on from photos submitted, and the chosen prom court will be contacted.
Dress in your best ‘80s attire. Gals, grab the Aqua Net spray, tease up that hairdo, and puff up those sleeves. Dudes, get that powder blue tuxedo dry-cleaned and slip on a feathered mullet wig for a “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” ‘cause “Girls Just Want To Have Fu-un.”
If you only “… Wanna Dance with Somebody,” rock out to the best ‘80s music with a live DJ. No need to spike the punch bowl, a cash bar with beer and wine will be available. Hors d’oeuvres will be served, and a photo booth will let you immortalize all that glitz and glamour.
Be sure to register at cityofcarrollton.com/signupnow in the Community section. Pre-registration is preferred to get an accurate head count for refreshments. Prom-goers must be at least 21 years old to attend. Receive a $10 early bird discount and pay only $20 per person or $30 per couple when you register by Sunday, December 23, or wait and pay $30 per person or $40 per couple at the door.
