Everyone’s invited to this four-year-old’s long distance birthday party

Apr 6, 2020

Mary Cooper’s daughter Aubrey will be turning four on Friday, and since a regular birthday party is out of the question, she came up with an idea to allow her to celebrate while staying at a safe distance.

Everyone in town is invited to drive by their house at 5 Wright Lane to honk their horns, wave, or even share a greeting through decorations on the car.

Cooper said her daughter was a little sad when she found out she couldn’t have a big birthday party like she usually did, so she wanted to figure out an alternative way to celebrate. After sharing the idea with family and friends, she reached out to the town through local Facebook groups to invite anyone who just wanted to get out of the house for a bit and help Aubrey celebrate.

They can decorate their car if they want, honk horns- just anything to make her happy,” Cooper said. 

The drive-by birthday is scheduled for 4:15 p.m.
