Finally! After months of anticipation, preparation, matching colors, selecting the dress – that hopefully another girl didn’t pick too – and hitting their parents’ pockets hard, high school seniors all over Chicagoland enjoyed one of the most magical events of their high school days: prom.

Hotels all over the city and suburbs turned their ballrooms into dance halls as youngsters arrived in the finest, shiniest rides – girls with their hair laid, nails done and guys sharp and tight.

Some students had the red carpet rolled out for them at the prom, after being sent off following toasts and lots of picture-taking as they left home.

Prom night marks one of the last celebrations, as a class, the youth attend before moving on to college or other life endeavors. When it’s all said and done, the young adults finally hit the dance floor and enjoy themselves with their friends with whom they’ve spent the last four years – longer for some who came from the same elementary school.

Prom usually ends up being a night to remember for the rest of students’ lives.
