As part of the ongoing celebration of Back to the Future dates, the Enchantment Under the Sea dance—held on November 12th, 1955 in the movie—was recreated!

The event took place Thursday night (November 12th, 2015) at the Complex in Glendale, where festivities included a costume contest, photo booth and raffle. The dance mirrored the one held at Hill Valley High School in the movie, where Marty McFly's dad George and his mother Lorraine fell in love after sharing their first kiss.

There were costume contests (guests competed for Best Lorraine and Best George), DeLoreans, and of course, a band.
