It’s time once again for the World’s Longest Yard Sale.
The 2015 version of the annual event kicked-off Thursday (August 7th) and runs through Sunday (August 10th) – stretching more than 690 miles from Gadsden, Alabama to Addison, Michigan.
As always, you name it – you’ll find it along the way.
127 Yard Sale 4Alabama traditionally has more than 1,000 vendors displaying their wares each year – antiques, furniture, fresh produce, collectibles of all descriptions and more.
The World’s Longest Yard Sale, also known as the 127 Corridor Sale – begins at Noccalula Falls Park in Gadsden atop Lookout Mountain, and then runs through the Dogtown community, Five Points, Ft Payne into Mentone and then on into Georgia.
From Mentone turn right onto Alabama 117 and follow into Georgia where it becomes Georgia Road 48. You will stay straight a short distance before turning left on GA 157, then left on 136, right on 189 then right on 157 again. This carries you directly in front of Rock City where you travel down Lookout Mountain and pick up TN 27 to the U.S. 127 Corridor for the remainder of the yard sale where it ends in Hudson, MI. (The road winds around a little in Chattanooga as you make your way to the 127 Corridor. Follow Ochs Hwy. off of Lookout Mountain to Tennessee Ave. to Broad St. to Hwy 27 to the U.S. Hwy. 127)
We urge everyone to exercise caution while driving along the yard sale route – and watch out for pedestrians along the way.
