Energy was high for the 19th Annual Collinsville Halloween Parade Saturday night, especially after the event was canceled last year due to the snowstorm.
The parade had a little added excitement when the town of Canton Volunteer Fire and EMS Department responded to a small oven fire at LaSalle Market just as it was about to begin.
Many parade attendees initially thought the department was part of the parade. After a short delay, the event resumed.
The parade is run by the Collinsville Artists Initiative and includes a march around downtown Collinsville, dance performances, costume judging, candy throwing, live drumming and much more.
