Flying cows, killer rabbits, taunting Frenchmen, and show-stopping musical numbers are just a few of the reasons audiences worldwide are eating up Spamalot!

U S 25 Yard Sale @ US 25 Yard Sale
Jun 6 – Jun 8 all-day
U S 25 Yard Sale @ US 25 Yard Sale | Lancaster | Minnesota | United States

We are at it again….This is our 7th Annual U.S. 25 Yard Sale. Dates are June 7th, 8th, & 9th, 2018. Judy Wigginton from Williamstown, Ky, and Randy Coffey from Berea, Ky. have been working hand in hand to make this the most profitable and exciting Yard Sale ever. The ‘Frugal Living’ Website, which rates ‘The Longest Yard Sales in the US,’ has listed this year’s event as the nation’s 10th longest and we just finished our 6th. year. Currently, almost every city, village, and town along the route in Kentucky, and Tennessee are participating in the 325+ mile route. The idea for the U.S. 25 Yard Sale originated in Williamstown, KY. The City of Williamstown, KY and its Mayor Rick Skinner have endorsed the event every year. Cities all along the route have jumped on the bandwagon as well. US 25 also known as Dixie Highway runs almost parallel to I-75 from Michigan to Knoxville Tennessee. There are some areas where it is known as Dixie Highway instead of U. S. 25.
