NEW BERLIN, Wis. (CBS 58) -- One New Berlin 90-year-old still wanted to celebrate his birthday despite the pandemic, so his family found a way to make it happen.

Dale William Worden was greeted by friends and family with a mini parade around his driveway Tuesday.

Despite having to dodge some snowflakes, the family says it's an experience they won't forget. 

"We had about 17 cars and about 40-50 people, all decorated, yelling and screaming, and I think he was very surprised," said daughter Wendy Smith. "He didn't know anything about it."

Four generations took part in the celebration. 

Dale's great-great grandson was born just four weeks ago.

It was the first time they were able to see each other, despite social distancing.
