Woman hosts 54th anniversary social distance tailgate for parents

Tailgate anniversary party

A West Kelowna woman got creative when looking for ways to give her parents a 54th anniversary celebration, so she decided to host a social distanced tailgate.

Terra Briden's parents Ernie and Myrna are celebrating their 54th wedding anniversary today amid the COVID-19 pandemic, making it nearly impossible to celebrate.

"We are unable to get together so I told them to meet me on the Westside in a parking lot," says Briden. "With the virus going on we don't know who's carrying it and we don't want to pass it to anybody. So I said come find us in the parking lot and they drove up and mom was all excited."

Briden and her children Regan and Evan greeted Ernie and Myrna to a tailgate celebration, social distancing themselves around a table in the middle of a parking lot with Starbucks and brownies.

"They did get toilet paper and hand sanitizer as an anniversary gift," laughs Briden.
