POWERplex Proposes Idea for Drive-in Graduations

May 1, 2020

The St. Louis POWERplex youth sports destination has proposed the idea of drive-in graduations to encourage physical distancing, while still allowing high school seniors to walk at graduation.

According to POWERplex, these drive-in graduations will take place at the St. Louis Outlet Mall.  There will be a parking field that accommodates 800+ cars, student seating, the main stage, two video trucks on either side, two screens beside the main stage, and concessions and porta-potties on either side.

With 800+ cars parked in the designated area, and four guests per car, these drive-in graduations can withstand 3,400 guests while promoting physical space.  In addition, graduates are going to be seated in pods of 40 to maintain public health and social distancing rules.
