The Shelbyville Balloonfest is taking place this weekend, and the community has once again come together to support the event. Along with Scarecrow Daze, the event is the last major event in the region for the year, and many are working hard to make it a memorable one.
Kevin Bernson with Shelby Electric Cooperative and one of the Coordinators for Balloonfest says it takes a large effort to put the event together.
Shelby County Sheriff Don Koonce says the community looks forward to the event every year, and puts in a great effort to make the event memorable each year.
Koonce and Bernson both appeared as guests on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our Downtown Shelbyville Studios.
