Keeping the fun going

Need a good way to spend time after prom? Watching movies, make popcorn, and accidentally bump hands with your crush when reaching into the popcorn bowl. Make sure to provide plenty of butter, salt, and popcorn seasoning, or even add skittles or M&M’s for sweetness.

Just because the prom ends does not mean the party must. Whether the group wants to continue the party or prefers a quiet night to relax with friends, the options for post-prom fit every group.

After-parties, the most common staple for high school students after prom, sets the bar high for other post-prom plans. Dancing the night away in a big house with loads of snacks and drinks seems like the perfect option to keep the party going. Post-prom parties, also a great way to socialize with old and new friends, will make prom truly a night to remember.

Bowling represents the perfect way to spend more time with friends. To some, the tradition of bowling in prom dresses and tuxes will never go out of style. This inexpensive option involves everyone and keeps the whole group occupied. Furthermore, most bowling alleys also include arcades or laser tag for an extra activity. Local options include Bowlero, AMF, and Stars and Strikes.

Still hungry after prom? Bundle up and enjoy a delicious snack with a bonfire and s’mores. Welcome in the summer with this traditional camp-fire vibe activity and celebrate the end of the school year coming.

Students can also rent a hotel room in Atlanta, Kennesaw or Acworth. As a group, splitting the hotel room costs and spending the night stays within budget and can bring the group closer together.

As an inexpensive choice for post-prom, game night offers an evening of fun. Friends can bring their favorite board games, use game consoles like a Wii or Xbox, or even play outdoor games like manhunt. End the day of games with a movie night by choosing movies everyone will enjoy at a Redbox and setting up a fort in the living room to watch until prom night exhaustion kicks in.

“Our movie night was really fun! All the girls went into the basement and watched funny movies and like fell asleep talking, so it was really fun. It was a good way to calm down and have fun talking about the night and our group,” senior Ansley Hayman said.

Not looking to follow the usual prom route? Have a fun Saturday anyway by hiking Kennesaw Mountain, binge-watching Netflix, or setting up a themed slumber party.

Whether the night ventures into hitting all the major parties after prom, a movie night at a friends house, or skipping prom altogether, the excitement of the night never has to end.
