This morning Mayor Annise Parker said "there will be a Thanksgiving Day Parade."
"I grew up watching that parade and know there are lots of Houstonians who look forward to that parade every year, and didn't want to disappoint them," Parker said.
More than $400,000 has been donated by private donors. The lead sponsor is H-E-B. Other sponsors will support the development of the Thanksgiving Day parade. The Mayor's office of Special Events will also participate in the presentation of this annual Houston tradition.
