Get ready to wear your Sunday best on a Saturday at the Winter Ball Adult Prom in the Hudson Valley.

Who remembers the prom? Fun times, or not-so-fun times LOL! We all can look back at the days of being in high school and attending the Junior Prom. It would be a semi-formal black tie or informal suit for the boys and evening gowns for the girls.

At the Prom, the "prom king" and "prom queen" would be revealed. These were honorary titles awarded to students elected in a school-wide vote prior to the prom. Other students would be honored with inclusion in a prom court. The selection method for a prom court is similar to that of homecoming queen/princess, king/prince, and court.

Inclusion in a prom court may be a reflection of the popularity of those students elected and their level of participation in school activities, such as clubs or sports. The prom queen and prom king would be given crowns to wear. Members of the prom court were given sashes to wear and photographed together.

I was never a prom king or member of any court, but I didn't expect to be. I was there just to have a good time with my prom date and friends. Were you a king or queen at your prom? Maybe you were and hope to be again. Or maybe you weren't and always wanted to be. Here's your chance!

Hudson Valley Restaurant Perfect for Date Night

Treat yourself to a romantic dinner at one of these unsuspecting Hudson Valley Restaurants. They offer the perfect combination of food and drink with a dining experience that feels intimate. I like to say these places are hiding in plain sight. You know them, you may even drive by them and now it is time to stop in for a romantic dinner date. From Kingston to Rhinebeck to Cornwall, and a few places in between it will be hard to decide you may need to visit all of them to pick you favorite.
