A Night in Paris

A Night in Paris was the theme for Harris-Lake Park's 2017 Prom. On Saturday, April 29 at 5:45, vehicles started lining up for the Car Parade. Assisted by the Lake Park Fire Department, the couples made their way through the Car Parade to the Red Carpet Entrance. After that, there was an official Grand March in the gym.

Dinner was then served at the Community Center. The meal was made by the junior class parents. At around 8:45 everyone headed over to the MS/HS commons for the dance. At 11:30, everyone had time to change and gather all their stuff for later.

At midnight, everyone gathered around the hypnotist as she took volunteers. As she continued, hypnosis only really worked on certain people. When she made them wake up, Brittney almost got attacked by an alligator, MaKayla thought a belt was a snake, and Greg won the dance-off to be a background dancer for Luke Bryan. Before loading the bus, everyone got to go up and pick two prizes. Considering the trip, the prizes were like shirts, gift cards, and certificates to many different places.

 At 2 a.m., everyone that was going loaded the bus for Kalahari. Soon we arrived at the Wisconsin Dells and ate breakfast at Denny’s. After eating, everyone loaded the bus and headed to Kalahari. Once we arrived, everyone got their wristbands for the pool and theme park. After swimming from 9 to 12, most went to shower before eating pizza. After eating, a lot of the people made their way to the theme park. The theme park had mini golf, go carts, a ferris wheel, laser tag, and much more. Prom color

 At 3:30 everyone gathered up and loaded the bus for home. We arrived in Lake Park  around 8:30 Sunday night. Tessa Ihnen’s favorite part about prom was the hypnotist. She said it is so funny and amazes her every time. Skylar Forbes said her favorite part was after prom because you get to hang out with all your friends and Kalahari was really fun. Bryce Schott said his favorite was after prom and hypnotist because it was fun and being hypnotized was a different experience. Isaac Ihnen said his favorite part was the hypnotist because it was funny to watch all the people.

Overall prom was very fun and a lot of memories were made!
