AVON – After weeks, in some cases months of preparation, the night is finally near. Hair, makeup, and dresses all perfectly planned and executed in full fairy-tale style. The gentlemen will trade their T-shirts for tuxes in preparation for the big night – prom night.

Zacca Za! Restaurant in Avon is inviting all local high school students to walk the red carpet on prom night, May 21, from 6 to 7:30 pm paparazzi will be on site to snap photos of this memorable evening as the students strut their stuff.

“Prom is a very exciting time for most young people, and for many it’s the first time they get to dress up and experience a formal grown-up celebration,” said Lourdes Ferzacca, co-owner of Zacca Za! restaurant. “Zacca Za! restaurant is thrilled to be a part of this very exciting evening in the lives of high school students.”

A three-course dinner is available for $40 per couple.

Once inside, the prom goers will be offered the opportunity to have professional photos taken by photographer Brent Bingham of Photo FX. The high resolution professional photos and paparazzi pictures will be uploaded, and available for free download on to share with family and friends.

This is the second year the restaurant has offered this exciting event for Vail Valley prom attendees. Last year was a great success with nearly all prom goers attending the event. Students will have two professional photos taken by Bingham: one formal photo for mothers and another fun version.
