A 4th of July tradition continues throughout Southwest Florida as residents of Cape Coral competed during the annual Freedom 5K Race.

Race organizers closed the Cape Coral Parkway Bridge at 4 a.m. on Thursday as participants prepared to gather for the 7 a.m. race.

The starting line for the run was along Cape Coral Parkway, adjacent to the Chamber of Commerce welcome center at Cape Coral Parkway East.

The post-run festivities included refreshments, beer and a music tent next to the Chamber of Commerce building.

Note: The Cape Coral Bridge will remain closed throughout the July 4th holiday until 3 a.m. Friday.
