EWA BEACH, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Friends and family in Ewa Beach jumped on the drive-by bandwagon (literally) to wish Carlina Sunio a happy 100th birthday.

Because of the pandemic, the family had to cancel the party they originally planned. But that didn’t stop them from holding their own birthday parade.

Cars filled with relatives, and grandchildren lined up on Kamakana Street around 11 a.m. Saturday, honking their horns and waving as they drove past.

Sunio was showered with lei and flowers as she sat under a tent in their driveway, looking on at her loved ones.
