Parade held in Lauderhill neighborhood to celebrate woman’s 100th birthday

LAUDERHILL, FLA. (WSVN) - A Lauderhill family did not let the coronavirus stop them from having a centennial celebration, with a little help from first responders.

7News cameras captured Lauderhill Police and Fire Rescue vehicles near the home of Clotilda Knight, near Northwest 47th Avenue and 20th Street, Sunday.

The cruisers and fire trucks’ sirens were blaring while other cars followed behind them.

Loved ones and neighbors then sang “Happy Birthday to You.”

Wearing a face mask and dressed all in pink, the honoree said she was overwhelmed by the heartfelt gesture.

“I really can’t see them. I could just hear them, but they’ve always been there for me. I love them, and they love me,” she said.

Knight’s family said they decided to put together the parade for her with help from loved ones and city officials.
