Squallis Puppet Prom

Squallis Puppeteers hosted its 11th annual Puppet Prom fundraiser, on Feb. 15, welcoming the public to support Louisville’s non-profit puppet theater company and spend a night dancing, romancing and celebrating those awkward first dates. Wax Fang’s Scott Carney performed, wowing the crowd with prom hits, and DJs Sam Sneed and Savannah Barrett spun hits. Guests also enjoyed a Magnolia photo booth, a silent auction, a “First Dates” puppet show, and morsels from Wilthsire Pantry, Grind Burger, and Lil’ Cheezers.
