The event will begin at 7 p.m. April 28 is recognized nationally by the AFL-CIO to honor workers killed or injured on the job.

As in past years, weather will determine if the event will be at the landscaped, outdoor memorial site along the park road or at the indoor pavilion just up the road.

“Hopefully we’ll have some good weather and we can actually do it at the memorial site, where the wall and the statue are,” Federation President B. Dean Webb said.

The park is located on Alton’s north and east side along College Avenue, also called Illinois 111 or Illinois 140 at that point.
