After Prom Party

Typically, the party begins at 12 pm and ends after the grand prize drawing at 3 am.  Festivities include music by a DJ, dancing, minute-to-win-it games, rook, a corn hole tournament and food and drinks.  Everyone who attends will get a t-shirt and a party favor bag.

A signed waiver and guidelines form must be signed by the attendee and a parent or guardian prior to the prom.  It is the attendee’s responsibility to make sure their guest is aware of the needed waiver and guidelines form.  No person will be admitted without this signed waiver and guidelines form.  Attendees can obtain forms for them and their guest at the office.
