Fresno's Veteran Day Parade is back on

FRESNO, Calif.

Parade organizers say over $40 thousand were collected from local businesses and individual donations in the past 24 hours to pay for the parade.

Veterans groups were concerned they would not have the cash to cover the expenses due to dwindling donations. The 90 year old parade is considered one of the biggest on the west coast.
