PAINESVILLE, Ohio (WJW) — Painesville community members held a parade to celebrate the 18th birthday of a girl with Down syndrome.
Kayla Lawson turned 18 on Friday. She was disappointed that her friends and family couldn’t celebrate with her because of the coronavirus pandemic, so the community stepped up to make her day special.
The parade was held at 5:30 p.m. on Arden Avenue. Eight to 13 cars were expected to participate.
