Other Edwardsville Events
Edwardsville loves a parade and the most popular is the annual Halloween Parade, held since 1924. Elaborate floats, marching bands, and costumed participants fill Main Street for nearly 2 hours on Halloween night. In good weather the parade attracts over 20,000 spectators looking for a fun time and perhaps a bag full of candy by the end of the evening. The parade begins at the Junior High on West Street (Old Route 66) and travels north to Vandalia, then east to Main Street where it travels north for an additional 10 blocks with cheering visitors all along the route.
