Dinner at the Drive-In

The Pennyroyal Arts Council recently teamed with Museums of Hopkinsville to host “Dinner at the Drive-In” at The Silo Event Center. These two groups have become well known for their decade-themed fundraisers. In previous years, guests enjoyed a 20s/30s theme, followed by a 40s-themed live radio show. This year's theme focused on the 1950s. Beautiful cars from the era were lined up outside the venue's entrance. Inside, women wearing poodle skirts and bobby socks, and men in rolled-up blue jeans with slicked-back hair enjoyed diner-inspired menu items, 50's rock and roll, and Cat Lacy's photo booth. Memorabilia from Hopkinsville's seven local high schools decorated the room, and everyone had fun with this year's live auction. County Historian William Turner gave a brief presentation, and the evening concluded with a screening of the James Dean classic, Rebel Without a Cause.
