Birthday parades have become a fun activity during the stay-at-home order in effect in St. Louis County due to the coronavirus. During the parades, residents drive by the birthday celebrant’s house separately in their cars, keeping social distancing. The events are organized online, in Facebook groups like Lindbergh Community Birthday Parades, Oakville Birthday Parades and Mehlville Birthday Parades. Above, Ryan from Crestwood got a parade for his birthday April 6.
