Tourism is one of the major draws to Shelbyville and Shelby County. Due to the heavy rains in the spring, one of Shelbyville's major attractions, Lake Shelbyville, has had to temporarily close beaches due to high water levels.
Freddy Fry, Executive Director of the Shelby County Office of Tourism says that one of the most asked questions her office is receiving, is the status of the beaches at the lake.
Fry says beach goers should keep an eye on the tourism office's website or social media pages for the latest information on when the beaches open.
Fry appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our downtown Shelbyville Studios.
