The World’s Longest Yard Sale begins this Thursday, despite the coronavirus pandemic.

The event that spans Highway 127 – and includes a portion of Highway 27 in our area – starts in Michigan and ends in Alabama.

Organizers are advising  sellers and shoppers to use caution with face masks and social distancing.  They also say, bring your own hand sanitizer and avoid touching items for sale unnecessarily.

The event runs August 6th through the 9th.  Motorists on Highway 27 should also exercise caution because of distracted drivers and sudden traffic stops.
