Record Breaking Prom Attendance for Hudsonville High School
Talk about a huge prom in Michigan that basically set a record for largest attendance for any Michigan prom celebration.
Before I break down the numbers, let me just say that when I went to my senior prom back in 1974 at Everett High School here in Lansing, we might have had roughly 100 couples at the prom inside the school.
All I can remember is that it was a very special night with great music and everyone was dressed to kill. Pictures were taken, there was lots of dancing, we couldn't have asked for a better night.
Let's move up to 2022 shall we? Hudsonville High School just broke the attendance record for their 2022 prom.
In fact, it was so huge that they had to change their entire venue because there were so many people at the prom. This was a record breaking event to say the least.
According to mlive.com:
Hudsonville sold 877 prom tickets and was forced to make a late venue change to accommodate the students only two days before the Saturday, April 30 event. It moved from StoneWater Country Club in Caledonia to GLC Live at 20 Monroe in downtown Grand Rapids.
That's incredible! Over 850 prom tickets sold and the prom party ended up in Grand Rapids. The previous record was over 600 prom tickets sold.
I can't even imagine that many people in one place celebrating the end of the school year.
Every once and a while, my wife and I will go out to dinner at one of our many local restaurants during prom season, and we'll see high school students come into the restaurant all dressed up for dinner and ready to celebrate.
