THE glitz and glamour of high school formals will hit Biloela and Moura today when students make their way to their final public hoorah.
Hundreds of community members are expected to watch the students' arrivals tonight.
One teen who is excited about the night is Moura High student Danica Becker.
"It's a bit sad that we are graduating and it will be over forever."
Danica said preparing for her formal had been a lot of work, especially finding her perfect dress.
"I went to Brisbane with my mum for the weekend and did a whole weekend of looking at dresses.
"I finally decided on one after about a day and a half of looking through dresses.
"I ended up trying on about 20, that wasn't fun.
"They were all different and then I finally got one and that was exciting."
Danica said she decided on her dress because it suited her.
"She (Danica's mum) wanted something completely different to what I wanted but we ended up with what she wanted anyway," Danica laughed.
"I thought I would have a strapless, big meringue puffy dress.
"And it is puffy and it is still what I wanted it's just that it has got the halter-neck."
Danica said planning the formal had been hectic.
"At the start of the year we started organising, then we had a term off, and since Coal Festival (in August) every week we have been doing dancing and organising decorations and stuff in lunch times."
Next year Danica hopes to move to Rockhampton and pursue a career in hospitality.
But before that she is planning to take time out next week for schoolies at Agnes Water.
"I just want to go and read a book," she laughed.
"I have been so busy this year I haven't even been able to read."
