Scarecrow Daze is taking place this weekend, and this one is a special celebration as they celebrate their 20th anniversary. Vonda McConnell from the Greater Shelbyville Chamber of Commerce said this event was brought to light twenty years ago when Jay and Barb Allred got together and realized Shelbyville didn't have a major celebration during the fall months. The Allreds will be the grand marshals of the parade this year since the festival has been a success for twenty straight years.
McConnell said, this year, they are having their first Scarecrow Daze Pageant, and they have near 35 participants in their various categories.
