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 about 80 years of the parade running through town, and ending up at their location.
Parade Chairman, Don Harlan, says it stages at the Shop N Save Parking lot, to Main Street, to Shamrock, to George, to Edwardsville Road, and ends up at the American Legion.
He says there will be floats, bands, cheerleaders and football teams participating. Harlan says if you want to join the parade, contact the American Legion at 254-7078, and sign up. It begins at 7:00pm from Wilshire Village Shopping Center.
