In more recent years, though, those pre-prom festivities have expanded. Last Friday was no exception for RFH Junior Prom-goers.

A glimpse into the pre-prom was offered by RFH grad Jenny Costello and former Fair Haven Councilman Chris Rodgriguez. Parties were all over Rumson and Fair Haven, but this glimpse is from a grande celebration at a Navesink Avenue home in Rumson and the Rodgriguez yard in Fair Haven.

The prom-goers gathered, celebrated, posed in the most chic of attire and headed to the main event at The Gramercy at Lakeside Manor in Hazlet.
