Organizers in East Alton are getting ready to put final preparations on their Halloween Parade, which the chairman says has been a tradition now for 79 years.   Organizers say participants will start showing up at Wilshire Village Shopping Center by 6:30 tomorrow night.

Parade Chairman, Don Harlan says if you want to get in the parade, just call their office at 254-7078.


Harlan comments

The parade starts at 7pm at Wilshire Village, goes to Shamrock, then to Smith Avenue, to Edwardsville Road and ends at the East Alton American Legion.  He says after the parade there will be cash prizes awarded for the best costumes, floats, and marching bands.
