Passport to Shelbyville

Passport to Shelbyville

The Shelby County Bicentennial Committee is sponsoring the “Passport to Shelbyville” scavenger hunt. Pick up a “passport” at the participating Shelbyville entities and find a historical artifact, photo, or information regarding the history of Shelbyville. You can have your “passport” signed by the business owner or shop clerk. Once all items have been found, you will be entered into a drawing for prizes. Gamers must register for the drawing at the participating business, government building, gallery, or service organization that the last item was found. Participating: Boarman’s Auto Sales, Short Furniture, Iced, Simple Blessings, Merle Norman, Flourishes Art Gallery, Shelbyville City Hall, Lake Shelbyville Area CVB, Corner Copy Print Shop, MyTec Solutions, My Little Bird on Main, Greater Shelbyville Chamber of Commerce, The Wishing Well, Simply Yours, Craig’s Sporting Goods, Shelbyville Public Library, Leach Wilson Chevrolet-Buick, and the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers Visitor’s Center. The drawing for the prizes will be held on September 4. Gamers need not be present to win.
