The West Harrison community took to the streets to safely honor a resident celebrating a milestone birthday.
Frank Zumbo, a West Harrison native, turned 103 years old Tuesday. His neighbors held a car parade outside of his home to help him celebrate. Mayor Ron Belmont led the pack of cars, along with West Harrison's police and fire departments.
Zumbo, born and raised in West Harrison, has lived through some of the most severe pandemics, including the Spanish flu of 1918, which claimed his father's life. He says he was around 15 months old at the time.
Zumbo’s family and friends also gathered outside of his home in their first reunion since the outbreak began in March.
"I haven't seen him in almost three months and I used to come here every three weeks," says Frank Zumbo Jr.
