The Dixie Highway 90-Mile Yard Sale through Northwest Georgia is this weekend, June 7-9. The route follows U.S. 41 from Ringgold south into Tunnel Hill, Rocky Face, Dalton, Resaca, Calhoun, Adairsville, Cassville, Cartersville, Emerson, Acworth, Kennesaw and Marietta. Hours vary, but many sales are open from dawn to dusk Friday through Sunday, according to www.olddixiehighwayyardsale.com.

The mega sale was created in 2006 to celebrate the simpler times and historic communities along the route, which passes through Catoosa, Whitfield, Gordon, Bartow and Cobb counties.

The current issue of Flea Market Style magazine ranks it the No. 3 readers' favorite miles-long yard sale, behind the 127 Corridor World's Longest Yard Sale (August) and the Peaches to the Beaches Yard Sale (March). All three are held entirely in or pass through Georgia.

The Cartersville-Bartow County Convention & Visitors Bureau coordinates the event's website. For more information, call 770-387-1357.
