The World’s Longest Yard Sale kicked off its second day today. The 690 mile yard sale that begins at Noccalula Falls attracts visitors from at least 40 states. Also known as the 127 yard sale, it travels along highway 127 through Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, and Michigan.
The yard sale brings a lot of tourism into Etowah County simply because this is the furthest south the sale goes. People from Mississippi and South Florida travel to East Alabama just to attend the yard sale.
The Executive Director for Greater Gadsden Area Tourism explains why he thinks this is such a popular attraction. The World’s Longest Yard Sale will carry on throughout the six states until Sunday evening.
