Government shutdown forces Balloon Festival to change locations

Posted:

Shelbyville - The partial government shutdown has forced a change of location for the Touchstone Energy Balloon Festival this weekend.

 

The event is normally held at Lake Shelbyville. However, this year you can see balloons above the Shelby County Airport on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

 

Saturday night will feature a cookout and rides for charities. Activities start at 4pm, with tethered glow rides at dusk. All proceeds will go to the Shelbyville Fire Department for new equipment.
