“The Alton Halloween Parade is always on October 31 except for when the 31st is on a Sunday, and then it is held the day before,” he said. “That is a long-standing tradition. I have had some calls so far from some people asking when it would be if it would be on the 30th again, but it is back to October 31 again this year.”
