For over 40 years, people have lined up for miles to buy and trade their treasures during the annual historic U.S. Highway 80 Sale, which is also known as the “World’s Widest Yard Sale.” The sale happens twice a year.
The spring sale is Friday, April 20, 2018 and Saturday, April 21, 2018, from sunrise until sundown on both days.
At 12 noon on Saturday, April 21, 2018, underneath the landmark Waskom Water Tower, stop by at the parking lot of the Community Church to hear “The Hootens” and “Open Range” perform for shoppers and tourists.
The Highway 80 Sale tradition started decades ago, to increase traffic and tourism along Highway 80, with stops in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. The fall sale will take place in October.
Local shoppers and travelers from all over have the chance to visit the different locations and shop ’till they drop.
