CAPE CORAL, Fla. - A tradition is staying alive in Cape Coral. As WINK News reported earlier, thanks to your donations, Cape Coral High School's homecoming parade is a go.

The final touches are being made on the floats that will be featured in Thursday nights parade.

The school was on the verge of canceling the parade because the city was asking for $1,000 to barricade the parade route, but after WINK News told you about the possible cancellation, the public spoke out and stepped up to help.

The students have been working for months on their class floats which fit the theme of classic cartoons.

The parade is now in it's 32nd year, and it's a tradition many residents were not ready to let go of.
