U.P. Prom Show

It may not be Paris or Milan, but a Marquette runway show is on tap for tomorrow.

Instead of pencil-thin supermodels in feathers and fur, it will be a host of Upper Michigan beauties in prom dresses.

Sarah Balding of Forsberg Flowers in Marquette is a co-organizer of the U.P. Prom Show, a chance for high schoolers heading to prom this spring to have a look at many different kinds of supplies in one place.

She says it started out as a way to fill the gap of high schoolers finding dresses for the few dress–up events in the area, but it’s turned into much more, with a giveaway of an ultimate prom package for a lucky young woman.

The doors open at Upfront and Company in Marquette open for the U.P. Prom Show tomorrow at 2 pm.

The runway show itself starts at 3.
