CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — The event billed as the World's Longest Yard Sale will attract bargain hunters across parts of six states, along 690 miles this weekend.
The event begins Thursday and runs through Sunday along U.S. 127. The northern end is Addison, Mich., and the southern end point is Gadsden, Ala.
The Tennessee Department of Transportation told the Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/OoqVAz ) the agency has suspended paving along part of the route to aid traffic flow.
This marks the 25th year of the yard sale, begun as a way to get travelers to get off the interstate highways to see the local sights and spend some cash in the rural areas.
The Fentress County Chamber of Commerce in Jamestown serves as the headquarters for the sale.
