The tech industry is ever-evolving, with startups continually pushing the boundaries of innovation. In 2024, several companies are making waves...

Socially Distanced Surprise Birthday Parade

A surprise car parade drove by the house of Portland, Oregon, resident Natalie Day to celebrate her 21st birthday from a safe distance on April 23.

The event, organized by Day’s mother, included around 15 cars full of family members of all ages that took part in the festivities.

To prolong the celebration, many cars took multiple laps, honking and stopping to give well-wishes. In a time of numerous cancellations, Day’s loved ones took the social distancing guidelines as a challenge and refused to let such a special day pass without proper recognition.
