TROUTVILLE (WSLS) - Monday was the birthday of a lifetime for a local boy.

Camden Eubanks turned 10 Monday and all he wanted for his birthday was a water balloon fight.

That's exactly what he got when more than 300 people showed to celebrate.

When his family put an invitation on Facebook the post went viral and resulted in a birthday bash blow-out.

"It made me feel terrific! Camden had a smile on his face the whole time," said Traci Eubanks, Camden's mom. "He was throwing balloons at everybody. He loved it!"

Camden has a disorder that makes it difficult for him to talk to people, so Monday's turn-out really meant a lot.

One father drove from northern Virginia with his two sons to celebrate Camden's birthday.

"My oldest son Leon is a special needs child also and I know how difficult it is for him to make friends," explained Ed Urbaniak.

The Troutville Fire Department was also on hand with two trucks to hose the kids down.
