If you live in downtown Seattle, you may have heard the cheers, screams, clangs of pots and pans, and even songs taking place at 8 pm last night.
The loud noise was in celebration of the front line workers who risk their lives to help others through the COVID-19 pandemic.
The City of Seattle urged residents to spend a few minutes at 8 pm on March 26 to erupt into cheers and applause — and boy, did they deliver.

@SeattleArts thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to pick her up from her nursing shift and drive through the streets as people cheered and made noise for her and her coworkers. As you can tell, she was moved. #SeattleTogether #MakeAJoyfulNoise pic.twitter.com/f0xBRJgP5M
