PROM NIGHT FESTIVITIES LEAD TO A BIG SPLASH

 COSTA MESA, Calif., May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Local entrepreneur Jim Monserrat knows Prom Night well. As a former limo driver, there was a time when he had to persuade one of his passengers against accepting a challenge to swim across Newport Beach's picturesque Newport Bay. "The problem was that the youth intended to swim across the entire bay, dressed completely in his tux," says Monserrat. "When I tried to stop him, I ended up falling into the water myself."
 As local high schools around the Southland gear up for Prom Night 1993, students wishing to take the plunge will be able to -- thanks to Monserrat's new business.
 Attributing his idea to that fateful day, the Gondola Company of Newport offers a one-hour cruise around the bay and the various canals of Newport Harbor. Monserrat hopes this taste of Italy will attract local students who are looking for unique ways to make Prom Night special.
 Monserrat beams, "Our gondoliers will be rowing students around the bay while they enjoy beautiful music and dine on French bread, cheese and salami. I think this is the ideal way to experience what our beautiful harbor has to offer."
