The theme this year was “Great American Road Trips.” The Edwardsville-Glen Carbon Chamber said in a statement, they are "always excited for the annual parade” and once again it went off without a hitch despite the cold temps.

Edwardsville Police Department was again out in full force to keep the pathways safe for the tight-knight Edwardsville-Glen Carbon communities.

The Edwardsville Arts Center had special comments and summed up the feelings of many about the parade: “There were many die-hard Halloween Parade fans out braving the bitter cold. We had so much fun in our first parade! Thank you to all those who walked with us, and to the Edwardsville | Glen Carbon Chamber of Commerce for organizing this annual event! We're looking forward to a new community tradition.”
