The 2017 Shelbyville Scarecrow Daze is now well in the rear view mirror for the Shelbyville Chamber of Commerce, however the economic impacts are still being felt. Despite less than ideal weather, the Shelbyville Chamber is hearing that many businesses had their best weekends yet for the event.
Vonda McConnell with the Shelbyville Chamber of Commerce says she's talked with many of the downtown Shelbyville businesses, and has heard great things about the weekend they had for Scarecrow Daze.
The entire idea of the event is to help get more people into downtown Shelbyville, and have a good time. Despite the weather, McConnell says this year's Scarecrow Daze did just that.
McConnell appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our Downtown Shelbyville Studios.
