“We wanted something different and a different experience,” Pogue said. “It’s a good experience for everybody to get together, rain or shine. We don’t have to move indoors because they’re in their vehicles.”

The town has partnered with the drive-in and Premier Theatres.

“We are taking each event as they come. We’re trying not to think too far in advance,” Pogue said.
