Carbondale plans festival in shadow of solar eclipse
The streets of Carbondale will spring to life when the sky goes dark this summer.
From Aug. 19 to 21, the city will host "Shadow Fest," a street festival to coincide with the solar eclipse. The name of the festival was chosen in an online contest put on by the Southern Illinoisan newspaper.
Arts, crafts and live entertainment will be featured during the three-day event, which will be held downtown. The solar eclipse is expected to hit its highest point just south of Carbondale on August 21.
