ARUNDEL, Maine — It's tough celebrating a birthday party in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, especially when you're a kid. Parades in lieu of birthday parties have become increasingly popular....but what if your dad drives a propane truck?

Ivy, the daughter of one of Champagne's Energy's drivers, got a special surprise on Wednesday. She turned 7 years old and to celebrate, Champagne's Energy paraded 7 trucks in her honor.

"I know there is a lot of anxiety in our community and state but when I saw this – I teared up and felt we all need a little more of this feel good stuff to give us hope," Melissa Mullen, a Champagne's Energy employee, said.

Several cars containing community members led the celebratory charge before the trucks brought up the rear, honking up a storm for Ivy's big day. One of the drivers even participated on his day off.
