Family modifies quinceanera to celebrate during the pandemic

One local family has been preparing to celebrate Isabella Hernandez's quince for over a year, but the pandemic forced them to modify those plans.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — It's something young Latina girls look forward to throughout childhood, their quinceanera, but the pandemic has put a damper on celebrations lately.

Well one local family didn't let that get in the way. Before the pandemic they were planning a big event to celebrate Isabella Hernandez's quince, but with all of the risks, the family modified their plans to organize a drive-by quinceanera instead.

"I just love my family for giving me a birthday. With all of this Covid going around I didn't think I was going to have one," said Hernandez.

Of course the quinceanera is a celebration of a girl's 15th birthday, marking her passage from girlhood into becoming a young adult. We would like to send out a happy birthday to Bella.
