This weekend, June 4 – 6, 2010, the Official Dixie Highway Yard Sale takes place. Traditionally held each first weekend of June, the Official Dixie Highway Yard Sale is in its 4th year and is over 90 miles of tables and tag sales, stretching from Marietta to Ringgold. The 13 Dixie Highway communities featured are Marietta, Kennesaw, Acworth, Emerson, Cartersville, Cassville, Adairsville, Calhoun, Resaca, Dalton, Rocky Face, Tunnel Hill, and Ringgold, and the yard sale stretches along Old Highway 41, the Dixie Highway (see map, right).
The yard sale “celebrates the revitalization of the Dixie Highway and attracts visitors to simpler times, giving communities along the route an opportunity to promote their individuality and hidden gems.” While yard sale registration is encouraged (but not required), you should keep an eye out for sales bearing the “Official Dixie Highway Yard Sale” signs. For a sample list of registered yard sale vendors, you should visit the Offical Dixie Highway website.
In each of the communities and downtown areas, there are great local restaurants and snack stops, such as Henry’s Louisiana Grill in Acworth. And a number of vendors will be selling snacks along the route, like hot dogs, BBQ, various other assorted snack, and bottled water and lemonade.
So grab your cash and empty your car – you’re going to need room for all your yard sale finds! Hit the road this weekend – Friday through Sunday – for the Official Dixie Highway Yard Sale!
