GOLCONDA -- If you were in the mood for some seafood this weekend, Golconda was the place to be. It was the 13th annual Shrimp Festival on Saturday.
The event featured southern Illinois-grown prawns, along with shrimp, fish and other seafood dishes. There were also plenty of family-friendly activities going on at the festival, including buggy and helicopter rides, live bands and a farmer's Market.
