Luke Skocypec’s sixth birthday called for a big celebration.

On Saturday, May 16, the family placed signs that read “Honk for my 6th birthday” outside their home on High Street and invited friends, family, and Luke’s teachers. Passersby honked their horns and waved as they drove by. A North Attleborough Police Officer led the parade and people stopped by during the celebration, giving cards and gifts. Luke’s mother Tasha said her son considered his sixth birthday to be a big event.

It would be sad to not have a party,” she said.

Among those at the drive-thru event were Luke’s kindergarten teachers at the Community School. Across the street a neighbor blew an air horn and excitedly wished Luke a happy birthday.
