NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – People of all ages are celebrating birthdays in a different way during the coronavirus pandemic. Although they couldn’t have a traditional birthday party the Holguin family still managed to celebrate Josiah who is celebrating his fifth birthday on Wednesday.
Josiah’s mom says it was all a big surprise. Drive-thru birthday parties are becoming a popular trend.
Wednesday, Aaron Frankel threw a surprise birthday party for his wife Melissa celebrating her 50th birthday. You can see friends even decorated their cars.
One carload was waiving New Mexico United flags. They also had a cake that looks like the Charmin bear holding toilet paper sitting next to some Clorox wipes.
