This is Our KC

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Because of social distancing and people not being able to gather in large groups, drive-by parties have become popular in the metro.

One such party took place in Leawood on Thursday.

Birthdays are super special to children and during the coronavirus pandemic, some may be having a difficult time and staying at home.

In 2018, FOX4 introduced you to Matthew Breedlove, a teenager with autism who is also an artist.

Dozens of cars lined Matthew’s street Thursday evening to with him a happy 19th birthday, even the Leawood police and fire department drove past his house to help celebrate.
