More than 1,000 expected for fifth PDI Reunion

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - Nearly 1,500 people are expected to gather in downtown Laurel Saturday night to celebrate seven decades of drive-in burgers, hot rods and classic rock and roll.

The fifth annual PDI Reunion & Car Show will feature live music, dozens of decades-old autos and plenty of hamburgers, fries and onion rings.

The event focuses on the cultural and culinary impact of Phillip's Drive-In. It is one of the oldest restaurants of its kind in the Pine Belt.

It opened back in 1948.

The cars line up at 4 p.m. and the music begins at 5 p.m.

This year's reunion is honoring the late Allen Ray Jones, who originally came up with the idea for the event.
