The wind was howling, but the rain stayed away and Shelbyville businesses saw big numbers from Scarecrow Daze Saturday.
Shelbyville Chamber of Commerce Office Manager Vonda McConnell says she has talked to many business owners in town, and they’ve all told her they had great days with the Scarecrow Daze festival.
McConnell says the owners of Craig’s Sporting Goods, Simple Blessings, and My Little Bird among other businesses also told her they had great sales days on Saturday. She says although it’s tough to estimate how many people attended the free outdoor event. But from talking to others involved with the festival and from her estimation, she says this year’s event was very well attended.
McConnell says when you add both the people that came to Shelbyville and the dollars spent in town that day, the Chamber’s goal for Scarecrow Daze was achieved.
McConnell says it started to sprinkle in Shelbyville as the last vendors were packing up and calling it a day. She is thankful that the day went as well as it did even with the winds.
