After an absence of about a decade, the Alton Expo will return to the Alton Riverfront Park this year. The carnival rides, games, food, and local entertainment that was a decades-old tradition moved away from the Riverfront as Amphitheater plans came together near the start of the century, but the city has finalized plans to bring the festival back to its traditional spot, both on the map and on the calendar.

The Expo ceased to exist after a final attempt by previous owners of Alton Square Mall to host the event, but Alton Mayor Brant Walker made the announcement Thursday morning that the festival will return.



The Expo will be held September 13-17.
