One of the oldest parades of its kind comes back for another run in less than a week.  This year will be the 149th annual Alton Memorial Day Parade, which steps off from the Alton Middle School.  The parade will be followed with a remembrance ceremony at the Upper Alton Cemetery.

In Alton, the parade follows the traditional route, and Alton Township Supervisor Don Huber tells The Big Z this year's Grand Marshal is Godfrey resident and World War II veteran Art Williams.

Mark Ellebracht and Mike Montgomery will have live coverage of the Alton parade Monday morning, May 30 right here on The Big Z starting at 10:00.  You can hear the full interview with Huber under the PODCAST tab.
