One Lafayette family decided to honor their relatives who are healthcare workers with a Healthcare Hero parade.

Maria Olivier has a brother and a sister-in-law who have been working on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic. She decided to put together a parade for them to say 'thank you.'

Olivier says that she is proud of her family and thankful for all those helping to keep the community safe.

"We'd just like to say thank you to all the healthcare workers and the frontliners, first responders who are just helping our communities and keep us safe," said Olivier.
