In case you needed a reminder how awesome St. Louis is … on Friday the city held its fifth annual MetroLink Prom, a formal celebration of the city’s beloved lightrail system.
Organized by some of the city’s most creative urban-dwellers, the event honors public transit and the vitality it brings to a city.
“Why do we do this year after year? Because MetroLink—and public transit in general—makes St. Louis a better, more accessible city,” event organizers said in a press release.
This year prom-goers even had a marching band to escort them to their after party.
Here is some footage of the first event in 2008:

This sounds like a hell of a lot more fun than real prom. Hats off to you, St. Louis.
