GERMANTOWN — One 6-year-old in Germantown got quite the birthday surprise when her family and friends showed up in parade form to wish her a happy birthday.

When Evelyn found out that she wouldn't be able to have her birthday party at the local bowling alley due to coronavirus, she was pretty sad. Her mom, however, had a plan.

Even with social distancing, this 6-year-old was still able to celebrate her birthday. After her party got canceled, Evelyn's mom put out an invite on Facebook, inviting friends and family to drive by and wish Evelyn a happy birthday.

The friends and family did not hesitate. Many of them got in their cars and drove by Evelyn to wish her a happy birthday.

It may not have been the birthday Evelyn was waiting for, but it was definitely one for the books.

From all of us at TMJ4 News, happy birthday, Evelyn!
