UNION, NJ – Prom night for Union High School seniors means red carpet glamour.  

And glamour was on full display at the annual red carpet walk Thursday evening, as Union High students walked the red carpet, alone or with their date(s), to a cheering crowd. 

Sponsored by the Union Township Community Action Organization, Inc., the event showcased beautiful gowns and stunning suits as students walked, danced or sauntered down the red carpet to a crowd of hundreds applauding and snapping photos. 

After the red carpet, students hopped back into their limos or cars and made their way to their prom at the Grand Marquis in Old Bridge for the evening’s festivities.
