Rotary announces addition of in-person attractions to virtual Post Prom 2020 and A Night to Remember!


2020 Announcement UPDATED!!

The Racine Founders Rotary Club is excited to announce that Post Prom 2020 will include both in-person and virtual events, thanks to community partnerships. The free in-person events will take place on Saturday, Aug. 8 between noon and 5 p.m. at the Racine Zoo and outside Festival Hall at the lakefront and the previously announced virtual events will begin at 8 p.m.

In between the two sessions, prom-goers will be on their own for dinner, shopping and enjoying local activities, like scavenger hunts and historic walking tours. Organizers have partnered with Racine Area Manufacturers and Commerce and Downtown Racine Corporation to provide prom-goers with specials and discounts for dining, shopping, as well as services and items for prom preparations. Check back here for continual updates!

The new attractions include opportunities to appear in a red carpet experience, participate in a motorcade along Pershing Park Drive, get a professional photo taken outside Festival Hall with additional entertainment to experience!

Horlick, Prairie, St. Catherine, Lutheran, Park, REAL, Walden, Case and Union Grove high schools, RAHS students, as well as the special needs students who participate in A Night to Remember, will each have specific times to access each venue. The staggered times will assure social distancing and comply with the city’s mass gathering guidelines. There is no charge for zoo admittance or the motorcade and photos, but wristbands will be required.

At the zoo, masks will be required per zoo policy to protect the animals. Although during videotaping at the decorated red carpet area at the Racine Rotary West Safari Base Camp, masks may be temporarily removed. Similarly, students may remove their masks for the professional photos taken in the decorated area outside Festival Hall.

Due to these restrictions, the public is encouraged to stay home and watch the activities at home. Details about the broadcast will be made available to the public.

Virtual Prom begins at 8 p.m., with coverage from the day’s events and special guest appearances. Red carpet and lakefront footage, combined with submitted videos capturing prom-goers in action throughout the community will be professionally edited for the presentation. Class videos from various schools, along with pre-recorded spots will also be showcased. Expect surprises!
