Hundreds Show Up to Camden Eubank's 10th Birthday Party

Troutville, VA -{}Hundreds came out to a 10-year-old's birthday party after his mother's Facebook invitation went viral. Camden Eubank suffers from a speech disorder and his mom just wanted him to have a special birthday.

It all started with a mother's Facebook post. She shared the story of her young son in need of friends for a small water balloon fight -- Camden Eubank's wish for his 10th birthday party.

"I was just hoping a few Facebook friends would come and bring their kids" Traci Eubank.

Camden was born with Apraxia a condition that makes it difficult for him to speak and his mom says making friends hasn't been easy. So she sent out an open invitation on social media hoping to help him make a few.

Little did she know... "We did a small count we think it was over 300 people" said Eubank.

"We rode from Waynesboro down here. We rode 70 miles dodging storms" said one guest.

"It took us 4 hours to get here" said another.

From all over Virginia and beyond. "We heard Pennsylvania, Georgia, and North Carolina" said Eubank.

What was supposed to be a small celebration, turned into a wet and wild evening of fun. Complete with a three tiered cake and about 6 thousand water balloons.

"From the smile on his face he is ecstatic I don't even know how to thank the people that have come out here for my son" said Eubank.

And no one was safe, from the water balloons, not even the vice mayor or Troutville's chief firefighter.
