Rotary Post Prom, 69-year-old prom tradition, will continue this year on Saturday, May 21 from 6 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. at the Racine County Fairgrounds, 19805 Durand Ave. in Union Grove. The Racine Founder’s Rotary Club is once again hosting a safe celebration for graduating seniors.
The celebration’s theme is “Moonlight and Roses” and will coincide with the indoor/outdoor gala-style event. This theme was chosen by senior representatives from the nine participating schools. This year students from Case, Horlick, Lutheran, Park, Prairie, R.E.A.L, St. Catherine’s, Union Grove, and Walden III high schools will gather for a fun community-wide event.
“This is the second year the club will present Post Prom at the fairgrounds,” Rotary president Chris Terry said. “The kids really seemed to like it there, so we decided to return for another year to celebrate the graduates.”
This post-prom event was established to provide a safe and fun environment for area graduating seniors following their respective school proms. This event is truly a Racine treasure that has grown to over 1,300 participants.
Parents and other spectators are welcome to watch this year’s Rotary Post Prom Parade in person from the VIP Spectator Bleacher Seats. Those wishing to attend and watch as the high school seniors make their entrance to prom may do so by purchasing tickets. Tickets are available for $10 at rotarypostprom.com. It is strongly suggested by Rotary that these tickets be purchased in advance. Attending visitors must enter off of Highway 11 and park in the middle spectator-designated section of the parking lot only. There will be volunteers also assisting with traffic.
Various municipal and county law enforcement departments will be on the premesis at Post Prom. They will be escorting the motorcade to the fairgrounds. Additionally, a small number of vehicles will be available to transport students back to Racine following the event, in emergency cases.
