The “unmasking” of Rogers 2011 Mardi Gras-themed prom was a burst of colors and fun for all who attended.
A little more than 300 students paid the $65 or more ticket price to attend. The night started off with a traditional grand march in the gym and followed with party buses, limos and cars all shuttling students down to the Metropolitan Ballroom in Golden Valley.
Senior Lauren Thibado was in a group of more than 20 students who rented a party bus for the evening. She said: “It was very fun.”
