Don’t feel like going to prom but still want to have fun with your friends? No worries. This year After, Prom will take place at Zodo’s Bowling and Beyond from 12:30-4:30 AM on April 28. After Prom is put on by the San Marcos PTSA as part of a safe Prom night.Tickets will be on sale in the Greek at lunch from April 15 until April 19. After Prom tickets are not included in Prom costs. Tickets for After Prom will cost $15.
“The San Marcos After Prom Party is not one you will want to miss,” said Dave Phreaner, a PTSA parent who is in charge of organizing After Prom. “There are hundreds of prizes to be won over the course of the night, culminating in the raffle of a MacBook Pro at the end of the evening. The best part is spending the night with your classmates for one last time before graduation. Tickets go on sale on April 15th and if you are a lucky guy or girl, you can win a free tux rental or a $50 gift certificate and a blow out from Shine blow dry bar if you buy your after prom ticket on Monday.”
There will be multiple activities to participate in including Monte Carlo style games, in which you can gamble to win money for raffle tickets, henna, caricatures, airbrush tattoos, wheel of fortune, and a photo booth. After prom will also have a DJ, bowling, and food. You can win various raffle prizes including gift cards, cash prizes, a Sonos sound system, or even a Macbook Pro. A Facebook campaign was launched on April 15 with Toyota of Santa Barbara where one senior will have the chance to win $1000. To win you must post the most spirited photo on Instagram or Facebook containing the San Marcos logo and the Toyota of Santa Barbara logo.
Some seniors are more excited for after prom then they are for prom itself. Emily Berk is one such student.
“I hate dressing up so I am so stoked to be able to party in normal clothes with my friends on Prom night,” said Berk.
After Prom will be a fun and exciting end to a great prom night. You won’t want to miss it!
