For the annual Night of the Stars formal event, dates and groups of friends gathered in the 10th floor ballroom of The Grand 1401 in downtown Fresno, Feb. 19.

The student leadership class organized and set up NOTS, which included professional photos, dinner, movie presentations and an awards ceremony.

In accordance with the theme, “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” the venue evoked a 1920s atmosphere. Teachers chaperoned the evening and manned a nonalcoholic bar for students.

This slideshow captures highlights of NOTS 2011. For more information on the event, including the award winners, read the Feb. 22 article, Roaring ’20s-themed NOTS continues annual tradition.
