Great Weather Makes For a Great Hullabaloo Photos by RR Best Hullabaloo on the square in Sullivan enjoyed a sunny afternoon Sunday, Sept 20 as some 1800 visitors from all over the area came to town. With the help of 28 sponsors and 85 volunteers New Life Church coordinated the three hour event with a host of inflatables and family oriented entertainment. “What we like to think is that Hullabaloo offers something for everyone,” volunteer Cheri Wood said. “It’s a totally free event that is safe for all ages,” she continued. She pointed out this is the fifth year for Hullabaloo. “The first couple of years we held it in October, and the first year we had snow flurries, and our hands were freezing to the duck pond.” Since moving to September, Hullabaloo has grown every year with folks coming from Springfield, Champaign, Neoga, Shelbyville and other surrounding communities this year. Wood noted the inflatables were very popular as was laser tag and the rock climbing wall. “There were lines at all the events during the three hours,” Wood said noting the beautiful weather and sense of community made this year’s Hullabaloo another great success.
