yard sale1PADUCAH, KY (6/3/12) – The 400 Mile Yard Sale is being held throughout the weekend. The event covers the length of US HWY 68 from Paducah to Maysville. The entire corridor from Paducah to Maysville has been declared a scenic byway (KY Transportation Cabinet official order 105072) and makes for a beautiful tour of the commonwealth.
 
In a release by officials, it was stated that, "Four days, 400 miles and hundreds of antiques, yard sales, craft booths, and special events await you. Travel Hwy 68-80 through Kentucky for four great days of shopping, eating and just being entertained. Special events planned all along the route.

Historic Highway 68 was once a major thoroughfare across Kentucky. But due to bypasses, interstates and parkways, many people have forgotten how much these communities have to offer. We want to change this. Twenty-five counties and more than 60 communities have come together and are participating in a 400 mile 4-day sale along this historic route! We see it as a huge opportunity for businesses and communities to entice visitors to once again stop by and rediscover the many hidden treasures each area has to offer."
 
The event began on Thursday and concludes on Sunday. This is the 9th event and has grown significantly to include areas outside the traditional route such as Hazel, TN. Event organizers attribute some of the growth to the increase in popularity of shows such as American Pickers.
