    Do you sit in your car on in camp chairs. I wasn’t clear on the Drive-in aspect.

      That’s a great question CAG, and we don’t have the answer. I would suggest contacting Broad St. Community Connections at (504) 561-7495. Sorry, they don’t seem to have an email address listed on their page (??!!). You could also ask the question on their facebook page. We aren’t really involved, just listing the news! Sorry!

      Hey CAG! You can actually do either. We will have room for people who bring their own blankets and chairs to sit, and we will also have room for people to come up with their cars at 8:30 pm.

      Thank you. We hope to see you there.
