This Saturday, September 12th, head over to nearby Cape Coral for the Parade of Heroes and Heroes’ Festival, which celebrates our local heroes. The title “hero” applies not just to military veterans but firefighters, police officers, first responders, and community contributors like the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of America.
The parade will begin at 10am at the corner of Lafayette St. and Cape Coral St. and will head west, ending at the Southwest Florida Military Museum. Immediately after the parade, the festival will start in the museum parking lot and continue into the evening, ending at 8pm.
The festival will include live entertainment and games for kids and adults, food and merchandise provided by local vendors, and—our favorite—a classic car show. No matter what you’re interested in, you’ll have a great time at the free Heroes’ Festival, and everyone can get behind supporting the people who make our city and our country great.
