The annual Halloween Parade in Bethalto is tonight.  It’s one of three parades this week in the Riverbend and it looks like the weather should cooperate. Line up tonight starts at the Bethalto Pool at 6:00 with the parade kicking off from the Village Tennis Courts at 6:30 p.m.

Bethalto Rotary President Ken Harmon says there are also festivities after the parade concludes:
