OROVILLE, Calif. – A birthday party like no other for one Oroville teenager.

Drastic times call for drastic measures when it comes to your children.

Sophia Ford turned 17 this week and her mom Christina wanted to make sure her daughter wasn’t forgotten since the coronavirus dashed any hopes of a party with friends this year.

So the mom decided a birthday parade would do the trick.

Sophia’s best friend and cousin rounded up her friends and everyone paraded past her house as Sophia watched her moving birthday party from the front porch. Those who attended, honked, had music playing, some made “Happy Birthday Sophia” signs.

The parade only lasted five minutes but for that short time, she forgot about the coronavirus.
