PORTAGE | Originally intended to celebrate graduating preschoolers, the Portage Township YMCA's Pee-Wee Prom quickly became a tradition for families of all shapes and sizes. In line with the Portage Y's mission of For All, this year's event, Under the Big Top, will be held at Woodland Park’s Oakwood Hall on Friday, March 10th, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
The Circus themed evening is for all family types and is geared towards children 8 years old and younger, but all ages are welcome. Attire is themed, dress-up or semi-casual and is open to the public. Amber Jones, Preschool Coordinator for the Portage Township YMCA’s Active Learning Preschool Academy has attended Pee-Wee Prom long before she was ever employed by the Y. “I just love this event for families. It gives parents, grandparents, step-parents, stand-in parents, guardians, adoptive parents, family friends and any other adult role models an opportunity to have a magical evening with some very special kiddos. Pee-Wee Prom truly encompasses the Y’s ‘For All’ stance.”
Catered food by Cappo’s with music and professional photos by Classic Photo will make for a most memorable evening and the fun doesn’t stop there. The Y’s iconic balloon-drop and take-home gift will end the evening.
Tickets are just $20 per person, all ages. Tickets can be purchased at the YMCA or online at www.ymcaofportage.org/prom.
