"We’re very excited about our third year hosting the Boomtown Ball & Festival," stated Mayor Jeff M. Gahan. "One new addition to the festival this year will be the Classical 90.5 Instrument Drive for New Albany-Floyd County schools. The Instrument Drive is a great way to expose young kids in our community to the wonderful world of art and music. I want to invite everyone to come help us kick-off the summer event season in New Albany."
