 Veteran’s Day Parade -  TBD
Join us as the community honors our American Heroes and pays tribute to those who lost their lives, those who served honorably and those who are still proudly serving our country. The Veteran's Day Celebration is a cooperative effort of the City of Cape Coral Parks and Recreation and other local supporters.

The parade will be on Cape Coral Parkway beginning at 11:00 am. The parade route is westbound from Cape Coral Street to Chester Street.

Holiday Boat-A-Long - TBD
