‘Thank You Heroes’ Car Parade for St. Jude Workers

A group of local residents organized a “Thank You Heroes” Car Parade on Tuesday April 21 which drove past St. Jude Hospital in Fullerton, in appreciation of those on the front lines of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

A procession of classic cars decorated with homemade signs thanking local healthcare workers made its way past the front of the hospital as healthcare workers gathered outside. This same group and community did a heroes parade for CHOC and St. Joseph Hospital in Orange the previous weekend, and there were at least 200 + cars that participated.

Participants honked their horns and yelled out thank you messages to everyone who was able to be outside. They had permission from Saint Jude Hospital for the parade, and no participants were to get out of their cars, to maintain social distancing.

Here are some photos from the event taken by Jayson Antonio:
