The Gaia Prom 2008, known as Prom Crashers, was a Gaia Online event.


Prior to the event the staff created a bunch of promotional videos. And a manga update showed how the NPCs were getting ready for the event.

The event itself involved a prom themed atmosphere and took place in the flash space Map:Fanterious Hotel. The event's chaperon was NPC:Edy. There were various areas created specifically for the event and one area included a dance mini-game that involved the use of keyboard clicks. The event forum held multiple subforums for different discussions. And to top it off, shops were updated to stock promo themed items some of which were designed by fashion designer Christian Siriano of Project Runway.
