Cape Coral, Fla. -- A lot of people wanted to celebrate a cape coral girl’s first birthday party.

The coronavirus kind of threw a wrench in those plans.

But, everyone found a workaround. They drove by Samantha George’s home to wish her daughter Aariyah a happy birthday from afar.

Samantha Fields sent in this video of the parade.

Fields tells us everyone was even able to watch Aariyah smash her homemade Elmo cake, from a distance.

She wrote an email to us saying, “we weren't going to let this quarantine prevent us from celebrating a very special day!”
