In a normal year, Joe Moreno would be celebrating his 94th birthday at Pietro’s No. 1.
However, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, his family brought him the next best thing: a surprise car parade in front of his house featuring several local dignitaries.
Joe’s grandson, Matt, said his grandfather had been wowed by a car parade in May hosted for Matt’s sister Carlie.“He thought it was just the coolest thing he’s ever been a part of,” Matt said.
“He was born and raised here, so he’s been here 94 years and he’s very familiar with the Fiesta Days parade. He thought it was the coolest thing that somebody would have a parade on their birthday.”
