It all begins with the choice of THE DRESS. Most girls in highschool spend hundreds of hours looking for the perfect one. Very often this includes a day trip to Asenovgrad, because that’s the Bulgarian capital of wedding and prom dresses! Boys, as you may imagine, usually go to a few shops with their mother where they chose a costume.
After long month of preparation, reservation of restaurants, cars (pay attention, it is of great importance to arrive at your prom in the most extravagant or luxurious way, you get bonus points for screaming out of your window), hairdressers, makeup artists, photographers and so on, the Prom day has come (most schools celebrate around the 24th of May)!
There is a tradition in Plovdiv for the surviving ones in the morning. After the Prom you have to go on top of a hill to watch the sunrise. Of course, you scream again. Guess what! Count to twelve for the last time.
Its aim is to put an end to the so called vanity fair and donate the money graduates would otherwise give for expensive costumes for a noble cause. That cause is the high education of students from foster homes. If you would like to support the project, you can order a T-shirt at: http://www.steniskanabala.bg/#vzemi_teniska
