A 50s style drive-in experience is headed to Acadiana

Cajundome and Social Entertainment announced on Thursday that they have entered into a joint collaboration to bring back 50's style drive-in entertainment to Acadiana.

The ‘Acadiana Drive-In’ outdoor events will take place at the CAJUNDOME this Fall.

According to the Cajundome, both groups want to bring entertainment back to the community, in a safe and socially distanced way. At the same time, they say they hope to bring some revenue back, after both had to cancel or postpone most of their previously scheduled events due to the pandemic.

“Drive-In entertainment is a logical decision when it comes to integrating present entertainment options with social distance parameters in mind,” event organizers say. “More than 4,000 drive-ins once operated in North America, at their peak in the late 50’s. Not only will the ‘Acadiana Drive In’ be a safe way to enjoy entertainment, it will also be exciting to bring the nostalgia of 50’s style events back to Acadiana.”

The Acadiana Drive-In events will operate within the current CDC & social distancing guidelines, according to a release.

Event goers can enjoy the entertainment from their car or sit outside their vehicle in their designated tailgate spot. Cars will be directed to park at assigned spaces, creating a safe distance from other event goers. The initial ‘Acadiana Drive-In’ entertainment line-up will be released soon, they say.
