City to celebrate finished downtown redevelopment project with ribbon cutting ceremony

The City of Shelbyville will celebrate the grand opening of the downtown Public Square on June 3 from 5 to 9 p.m.

There is a full day of activities slated for the day starting with the return of Shelby Senior Services’ Strawberry Festival.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on E. Washington St. off the Public Square.

Strawberry shortcake and ice cream will be sold for $7.

The city also will celebrate Municipal Government Day on June 3 in conjunction with the Strawberry Festival.

There will be hot dogs and hamburgers available downtown and various city departments will be on site along with equipment on display.

The ribbon cutting to officially dedicate the three-year, $20-plus million downtown redevelopment project is set for 5 p.m. on the northeast quadrant of the Public Square.

A bounce house, adult games, food and music will be part of the four-hour celebration.

“We are hoping for a big crowd. We are hoping it will bring a significant amount of business for the local establishments downtown as well as people getting out and enjoying the space,” said Shelbyville Mayor Tom DeBaun.
