Kisbey, Sask., man celebrates 100th birthday with 75 car surprise parade

Plans for a more traditional party, Albert Hale's granddaughter Lauryn Labrash rallied the local community to come up with a socially distant replacement.

The result was a car parade attended by over 70 people, from close friends and family members to the local police station.

“He looked and the cars continued to approach, and he turned and said:“ They are still going! ""

Labrash says she was inspired in part by the love of parades, which she says Hale has maintained for ten decades of his life, inspired her to organize the event.

She says she didn't expect such a far-reaching reaction when she began planning a birthday surprise that even featured a tractor being driven into town by a friend of her neighbor's grandson.
