Golden Illinois is celebrating 150 years this weekend, September 6 - 8.

This is a big deal for Golden. The residents of Golden are very proud of their town and history. Friday, Saturday and Sunday is packed with things to do and see and many things visitors can be involved in, such as the beard contests. If you can grow one, you might win a prize! An Elvis Impersonator will be there, too. Plenty of food, dancing, volleyball tournaments. A sausage and biscuit and egg breakfast will be served by the Lions Club. Antique tractors, wagon tours, craft and quilt displays and much more.

And don't forget about the big parade starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday. Golden, Illinois would love to see you and help them celebrate 150 years of great times and great people!
