Prom is an iconic milestone for any teen, but for some families, the first formal dance comes long before college: Think more along the lines of just before kindergarten.

Preschool proms are more popular than ever, and while some are simple, low-key dance parties for the pre-K set, others have parents -- and kids -- pulling out all the stops.

From suits, bow ties, and vests for the mini-men to tulle skirts, sparkles, and tiaras for the little ladies, fancy preschool proms give kids a chance to show off their dressiest duds.

Goodnight everyone. #preschoolprom

We've even seen red carpet arrivals, kids arriving in Power Wheels, and posed photos with parents and teachers.

Of course, since most kids don't need any extra incentive to break out their best dance moves, eat cake, and party with their friends, the adorable outfits may be more for mom's Facebook friends to awww over than for the little graduates to celebrate.

Well now, isn't that adorable!? #preschoolprom #noblesvillelibrary
