It’s that time again! The Highway 60 Yard Sale is looking for participants – and why wouldn’t you want to get involved?

This 200+ mile yard sale celebrates its fifth year in 2010 and has grown to include 8 western Kentucky counties. These include Livingston, Crittenden, Union, Henderson, Daviess, Hancock, Breckinridge & Meade counties. The annual sale will be held the weekend of Oct 1-3, 2010 along Highway 60.

Hundreds of local individuals, businesses, and groups are expected to participate this year, setting up yard sales and craft booths on their properties along the highway. This unique event allows visitors from Kentucky and surrounding states to enjoy an exciting shopping experience, while taking in the distinctive flavor of the Ohio Valley’s unique restaurants, shops, and southern hospitality. The sale will also provide an excellent opportunity for local organizations and clubs to hold fund-raising events.

In addition to the Highway 60 Yard Sale, shoppers may also want to check out the Green River Area Development District’s Arts & Crafts Festival, held concurrently at John James Audubon State Park in Henderson, along the western portion of the route, on Saturday and Sunday, October 2 and 3. For the past 38 years, this annual event has been delighting visitors with artisan and craftsman booths, artist demonstrations, delicious food, and live music, set against a scenic natural backdrop.
