Shelbyville Scarecrow Daze took place last weekend in downtown Shelbyville. The event was a huge success, with a large turnout. Vonda McConnell with the Shelbyville Chamber of Commerce spoke with Regional Radio News and said perfect weather helped make the event a success.



Shelbyville was also hosting their annual Balloonfest. McConnell said with all of the events going on in Shelbyville, you couldn’t pick a better weekend to visit Shelbyville.
