Balloonfest is kicking off this weekend and there is a lot planned with it. Freddie Fry, Director of the Shelby County Office of Tourism said she hopes there will be a lot of people attending this year, since the county wasn't able to have it last year. One of the events Fry said she looks forward to most is the Balloon Glow, Saturday Evening.
Fry explained the history of Balloonfest and how it came to be such a staple in the yearly Shelbyville calendar.
More information and a full schedule of events can be found at lakeshelbyville.com or on their Facebook page at Lake Shelbyville. Fry appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
