CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A Charlotte favorite is back.

Weeks after being canceled due to no funding, the Thanksgiving Day  Carousel Parade will go on thanks to new sponsor Novant Health.

A tradition since 1947 the parade was canceled earlier this year after Belk announced they would not be sponsoring it again, choosing instead to focus on their other charity work in the community.

But Tuesday, Novant Health -- Presbyterian hospitals -- announced they're taking over as the title sponsor and saving the parade.
