Sophie celebrates turning 4 with drive-by unicorn party

drive-by unicorn party
Sophie celebrated her 4th birthday with a drive-by unicorn party.

Sophie McKenzie’s birthday was supposed to be full of wonder and celebration with family, but as the COVID-19 regulations limited the number of party guests, her family decided on a drive-by unicorn party.

Sophie’s nanna Diane Keane was ready to make the day special with her Suzuki decked out with streamers and the horn of a unicorn placed securely on top, to create a unique unicorn automobile.

Sophie McKenzie’s birthday was supposed to be full of wonder and celebration with family, but as the COVID-19 regulations limited the number of party guest, her family decided on a drive-by unicorn party.

“In these uncertain times I think it’s important to celebrate the little milestones in life,” Diane said.

“We as adults don’t understand everything that is going on at the moment, so I guess it’s even harder for the little ones.

“That’s why we thought we had to make Sophie’s birthday special and we did what we could to help that happen with the drive-by unicorn party.”

Diane said Sophie’s reaction was priceless and made the drive-by unicorn party effort more worth it.

“We just thought it would be a bit of fun and to help make the day extra special, but Sophie was amazed to see the car done up like a unicorn, and it was our pleasure to do it!”

Sophie’s dad Steve and stepmum Elisha Keyworth said Sophie was delighted, and she really enjoyed turning four.

“Due to COVID-19 restrictions having people over wasn’t an option so it was decided to do a drive-by party,” Elisha said.

“One group thought why not create something special for her, and (they) transformed their car into a unicorn mobile.

“Sophie’s nanna, aunties, uncles, cousins and friends drove by, honked their horns and stopped to pass presents out of their windows and were rewarded with beautiful unicorn cupcakes.”
