Apparently Carbondale is calling all of the celebration surrounding the upcoming eclipse : Shadowfest Certainly better than "Eclipsy McEclipseface":
The City of Carbondale is excited to announce “Shadow Fest” as the official name for the solar eclipse street festival.
More than 100 votes were submitted online and dozens of original festival names were posted on social media, thanks to a community-wide poll conducted by The Southern Illinoisan.
The three-day festival will be held in downtown Carbondale August 19-21. It will feature arts, crafts, food, live entertainment and more.
The total solar eclipse will reach its greatest point of totality just south of Carbondale on August 21.
