Spectator parking is available in the 'super lot' east of Main Street, and on side streets along the parade route. The Jerry's Tire Sales lot is reserved for handicap parking. Portapots will be available at Walgreen's, First Clover Leaf Bank, and Big Daddy's.

In Case of Inclement Weather

In the case of inclement weather, the Edwardsville/Glen Carbon Chamber of Commerce, along with City of Edwardsville officials, will make a determination between 5 and 5:30pm Monday, October 31. There is no make-up date for the annual Halloween parade.

In case of delay or cancellation, the announcement will be posted online at www.edglenchamber.com, and on the Ed/Glen Chamber's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/EdGlenCOC.

Public safety is of utmost concern.

"I am optimistic that this annual tradition will continue in 2016, provided participants and spectators have a safe environment from which to enjoy the parade. Although the parade has been delayed for rain in the past, we are unaware of the parade being cancelled in the past due to inclement weather conditions. We respect the significant investment of time and funds from all involved and will do everything in our power, weather permitting, to ensure sure the 2016 Edwardsville/Glen Carbon Chamber of Commerce Halloween parade occurs," said Ed/Glen Chamber president and CEO Desiree Bennyhoff.

An Edwardsville/Glen Carbon Tradition

Each year on Halloween night, an estimated crowd of 25,000 spectators line the streets of downtown Edwardsville in anticipation of this annual tradition. The Edwardsville/Glen Carbon Chamber of Commerce has brought the Halloween parade to the community for nearly 95 years. Marching bands, school groups, organizations, entertainers, and more than 100 floats take to the streets.
