Just after 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 3, a long line of cars started down Rodeo Road.
With balloons and signs and gifts, the parade made its way to Leah Moriarty’s house as a 60th birthday surprise, social distance style.
“This is so crazy! This is so crazy fun!” Moriarty shouted as her friends and village neighbors wished her a happy birthday from a safe distance. She and her family watched from their front lawn as the dozens of locals passed by, smiling and laughing the whole time.
Moriarty is a longtime village local and said repeatedly as she greeted everyone, “I love my neighbors.”
