CARROLL COUNTY, Md. — Carroll County twins Evan and Landon Copley were upset their tenth birthday party had to be canceled over the COVID-19 pandemic.

So their mother Kara took to their elementary school's Facebook page group to see if anyone wanted to celebrate.

And so it began, a pop-up birthday parade.

On Thursday while Evan and Landon were outside playing, several honking cars including a police car drove by the Copley's home with lights on and sirens blaring to wish them a very happy birthday.

"I was blown away by how many people decided to come out for the day, way more people came than I ever anticipated, and they were really sad and disappointed about their birthday that had to be canceled and it it brightened their day and turned it very positive," said Kara.

We here at WMAR-2 News wish Evan and Landon a very happy birthday.

The Copley family caught the entire pop-up birthday parade on video, and posted it to their Facebook. You can watch it below.
