Sardo Bros. Band performed nostalgic Elvis and Everly Brothers tunes as the crowd gathered at the site of the former Montrose Theater, now the parking lot of . Classic cars cruised the street and Crescenta Valley high school from students dressed in 1960s-era shirts and appliqued circle skirts, serving popcorn and noting food orders.
The event is sponsored by Prom Plus, an organization led by parents and students that plans an annual after-prom party at the Crescenta-Canada YMCA to keep the kids safe. Students raised money from restaurant order tips as one of their fundraisers this year.
Tonight organizers Steve Pierce and Tony Smith will be screening Grease, another blast from the past in a fun-filled night on the town.
