Thousands of visitors enjoy the opportunity to treasure hunt along the route and participation can include an old antique sitting in the front yard of one's home, to clusters of sellers set-up to showcase their items on vacant land and community centers.
The sale officially begins the first Thursday of August each year.
The World's Longest Yard Sale began as a way to demonstrate the tremendous cultural advantages of traveling the back roads in Kentucky.
Originally referred to the Us 127 Corridor Sale in 1987, the event was coordinated with lists of attractions along the route in Kentucky and Tennessee.
Today the event begins at Addison, Michigan and runs south to Chattanooga then onto Lookout Mountain Parkway, continuing to Cloudland, Georgia and Gadsden, Alabama.
Along with the tremendous treasure hunting opportunities, the event offers visitors an invitation to enjoy the ample fishing, hiking, music, arts and crafts, river boats and spectacular scenery and engaging southern charm found around the areas on the route.
Hotel, bed & breakfast, or park reservations need to be arranged immediately because availability goes quickly.
