HOUSTON -

A tweet from Houston’s mayor may be a sign that the Thanksgiving Day parade will go on after all.

Mayor Annise Parker tweeted late Thursday night about it.

“I think we can save the Thanksgiving Day Parade. City & corporate donors stepping up. Tight sched. Have to scramble since HIF sold floats,” @anniseparker’s tweet read.

This comes just days after the Houston Festival Foundation said it could no longer afford the half-million dollars to produce the event.

Last year, more than 400,000 people attended the parade in downtown Houston.
