Prom at the Grey Eagle

Miss your high school prom? Too nerdy to notice when it happened? Or too cool to go then? Or was it the best time of your life and you want to keep the magic alive?

In what has become an Asheville tradition, you now get a second chance to wear polyester clothes, even leisure suits, in — gasp! — light blue, poofy skirts and get your hair “did up” high. Real high. Dance the night away. Have embarrassing photos taken. Drink to excess. All the things that make proms what they are, or were.

And of course, there was gold tinsel to toss around as the party wound down.

Photos taken at the photo booth inside the event can be seen at MountainXpress facebook site.
