ERC in the Edwardsville Halloween Parade

The Edwardsville/Glen Carbon Chamber of Commerce hosts the annual Halloween Parade in downtown Edwardsville. It’s a huge tradition on Halloween night, and thousands of spectators come out rain or shine to watch the parade of over 100 floats sponsored by local businesses and organizations.

This was the first year that the Edwardsville Robotics Club entered a float. The JrFLL and FLL students dressed up as Minions from the Despicable Me 2 movie. The FTC and FRC team members drove the large FRC robot down St Louis and Main Streets. It was great to hear lots of comments like “Hey, a robot! That’s awesome!” from both young and not-so-young people.
