A Lafayette businesswoman celebrated a very special birthday on Saturday.

Claire Ashy turned 89 years old, and her family held a drive-by parade to celebrate.

Family met at St. Mary's Church in Lafayette and proceeded past the family's home to wish Mrs. Ashy a happy birthday. She was quite surprised by the celebration.

"I was expecting two hamburgers from Judice Inn from my granddaughter," Mrs. Ashy said. "And this is what I get. It's indescribable the feeling that I have today."
