Celebrating birthdays can be difficult during these times, but a local neighborhood made sure they celebrated the 98th birthday of a veteran.

Dale Cheeseman turned 98-years-old Tuesday. We profiled him for our a veteran's voice segment back in January.

He lives alone, but today his family did a drive-by birthday parade from 5 until 6 p.m.

This wasn't your typical birthday parade because dozens of people took part, even Bakersfield Mayor Karen Goh helped celebrate his big day.
