Metrolink Prom this Friday Celebrates 5 Years of the Blue Line

Yesterdays post focusing on the old concrete wall that bordered the Forest Park Parkway. Today I want to promote the 4th Annual Metrolink Prom that will be happening this Friday evening. The event will be a celebration of the Metrolink Blue Line, which opened five years ago (the anniversary was in August).

Just like it sounds – a full-blown, high school-style PROM aboard your favorite transit system. Dress in your finest attire—try to wear something blue—and meet us at the MetroLink Forest Park/DeBaliviere Station on Friday, October 7, 2011 at 7 p.m. We’ll direct you from there. When we arrive at Shrewsbury Station, we’ll award the night’s finest dressed (blue-themed formalwear or costumes) with the title of Prom King and Prom Queen before riding back to the Skinker Station.

The newly anointed Prom Court will then lead us in our promenade from the Skinker Station to the Moonrise Hotel’s rooftop bar for our Blue Moon Ball – a night of drinking and dancing with an unparalleled bird’s eye view of the city and its duo of MetroLink lines.

No, you don't need to get a date! Go stag or with a group of friends... it does not matter how you arrive, but you are guaranteed to have a blast! Please RSVP on the events Facebook page and more info is available on the Tumblr site.

Hilarious! The neighborhood with the most metro stops (Skinker DeBaliviere) is having a "Homecoming" fundraising party the next night, October 8th, at Crossroads school. It sounds like people are on the same wavelength here...
