The East Alton Halloween Parade is on the way tonight, and it's not too late to get in on the fun. Organizers at the East Alton American Legion are celebrating more than 80 years of the parade running through town, and ending up at their location. This year, the Assistant Chairman says the parade will go on, even if the weather turns bad.
