The Friday the 13th prom for grownups at the Grey Eagle was a smash — a veritable night of time travel to an earlier age of innocence, awkwardness, romance, longing and cheesy attire. Some 600 attendees danced and mingled the evening away.
The co-organizers, brothers Chris and Drew Findley, say the event was such a hit that they plan to make it an annual affair. For the time being, anyone who did or didn’t make it to the prom can witness some of the magic in this online gallery of formal (but fun) portraits, which are provided courtesy of Castell Photography.
