ALTON — Commemorative shirts celebrating Alton’s 100th Halloween Parade are on sale at the Alton Visitor Center, 200 Piasa St.
A limited number of shirts are available in sizes ranging from adult small to adult XXL. The shirts cost $15 each. Proceeds will benefit the East End Improvement Association, which puts on the annual parade.
The design celebrates 100 years of Alton’s Halloween parades and has ghosts, witches and haunted houses wrapped around the number “100.” The long-sleeve shirts are available in heather gray with a black design or black with an orange design.
“We wanted to do something fun and commemorative for the parade,” said Brett Stawar, president/CEO of the Alton Regional Convention and Visitors Bureau. “The shirts are a great way to provide a souvenir of the parade and raise funds to help the parade continue for another 100 years.”
The traditional Alton Halloween Parade steps off at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31. The parade starts at the corner of Washington Avenue and Broadway and continues on Broadway to Piasa Street and then north to Ninth Street.
To purchase the shirts, stop by the Alton Visitor Center or call (618) 465-6676.
