It's the Longest Yard Sale's 23rd anniversary

JAMESTOWN, Tenn. (AP) --It's the 23rd anniversary year of the World's Longest Yard Sale.

For the next four days, collectors and bargain hunters from Alabama to Michigan can again rummage roadside stands along U.S. 127. For many, treasure hunting in the off-the-beaten path marketplace has become an annual summertime tradition. And nobody with money to spend has to go hungry.

The longer-than-ever, 675-mile route stretches from Gadsden Ala., across the Lookout Mountain Parkway and Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee, into the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky and through Ohio to southeastern Michigan.

Headquarters for the sale that continues through Sunday is the Fentress County Chamber of Commerce in Jamestown, Tenn.
