Zoe Segal’s (pictured) 12th birthday was approaching, and mom Meredith Segal came up with a way to celebrate while social-distancing: a birthday parade. She messaged friends and family and asked them to start a parade on nearby streets and to throw small, wrapped candies at Zoe. Meredith decided to also post the request on a local Facebook group, and she soon received a message from Miranda Hagee – her daughter, Mackenzie, was also celebrating her 12th birthday on the same day, and could she join in on the celebration? Meredith quickly said yes and asked if any other kids were celebrating that same day. Paige M. Padgett replied that her son, Casper, was turning 11 that very same day. The parade was scheduled and a map posted for everyone to follow. On the day of the scheduled event, the weather didn’t cooperate with their plan, so they rain-checked for later that weekend. The sun came out, and the parade party began. Candy was thrown, Zoe passed out cupcakes, and the evening culminated in an outdoor movie on the Segals’ driveway with neighborhood kids.
