MetroLink Prom 2009: The Enchanted Ride ….event information!

Edit: Looking for MetroLink Prom 2010 event information? Find it here.

Join us for a fairytale evening of dancing and finery aboard the MetroLink! It’s time for MetroLink Prom 2009: The Enchanted Ride. You don’t need a fairy godmother to help you get home when you’re transit savvy.

MetroLink Prom will take place on the evening of Friday, October 23, 2009. Be at the Forest Park platform at 7:30. From there, we will ride west to Clayton and then take another train back east to Laclede’s Landing. En route, we will elect a prom king and queen, slow dance, line dance, and take prom portraits. If you’re up for even more dancing, we’ll head to Morgan Street Brewery on the Landing for an afterparty. We’ll take the last MetroLink back to Forest Park from there, before the train turns into a pumpkin for the night.

Bring dollar bills for your train fare. Formal wear (from any decade) is strongly encouraged. Bring a date, bring a friend, bring your block captain, bring your kid, bring everyone you know! Prom will go forward rain or shine.

Last year’s MetroLink Prom was the first ever. Over 80 people attended, and a good time was had by all. We hope you’ll join us for this year’s magical evening aboard public transit. A lot can happen when you don’t have to drive.

P.S. PROM IS STILL ON FOR THE ORIGINAL DATE AND TIME! Facebook sent our message out a day late, but yeah: Prom is on for Friday the 23rd. Be there.

PS. PS. If you took photos at prom and would like to share them, please e-mail a link to clairelovesthecity {at} gmail.com and I will post it here in the coming days! Thank you!!

In love with the journey,
Miz MetroLink, Claire-ian the Librarian, Melissa, Chris, & Annemarie

  1. Haha – what a fun idea!

  2. Interesting idea…

    I might stop by and check out the Prom and see how this goes.

    But one thing, is the prom over when the Metro Link stops running?

  3. I just made the greatest Metrolink Prom corsage on planet earth. To what lucky lady’s wrist shall’t befall now?

  5. Around 10:00pm, we’ll disembark from the train and take prom portraits, and then head to Morgan Street Brewery in the Landing. You can party as late as they will let you. I think the plan is to ride the last train back to Forest Park together, although a few of us are a little sick so we may not be around that late. But you can party as late as your heart desires, especially if you’ve got money for a cab!
