Customer Appreciation BLOCK PARTY....



Shop participating merchants September 15th - 19th to receive 1 entry per purchase for the Door Prize Drawings. Must Be present to win.



For everyone that is a fan of yard sales – buying or selling, this announcement is for you! We would like to

take this opportunity to let you know that one of the best marathon yard sales is just about upon us! The 29th

Annual Rollercoaster Yard Sale is scheduled for October 2-4, 2014. It’s a wonderful time of year for a sale –

the weather is beginning to become cooler and it is during the driest (historically) month of the year. We

cordially invite you to make this event part of your fall plans! We realize there is a lot going on this time of

year and we appreciate your participation as a buyer or as a seller. We hope you have a wonderful time! Make

this a social event by telling all of your friends and inviting them to participate alongside you. There are several

events that are also occurring during the sale in the communities along the route. Be sure to check those out as


Here’s a little history for those that are new to the sale: the Rollercoaster Yard Sale is unique in many ways.

First it is the oldest and most authentic marathon yard sale in Kentucky and Tennessee. Secondly, it is a

destination yard sale. What does that mean you might ask? The route encircles the Dale Hollow Lake area –

beginning and ending at any point along the route that suits you best. You can easily bring along family and

friends that would rather do something besides yard sale and allow them to enjoy their day while you shop yard

sale after yard sale – and still be close by. All because you can start and end anywhere along the route and/or

move farther around the loop each day. Either way - loads of fun and bargains are sure to be found. The

October dates offer cooler weather, yet it’s plenty warm to enjoy your days – and nights. The regions vast

agricultural landscape offers endless beauty in addition to the area waterways that are well known. It is also

harvest time offering a bountiful selection of fall produce. Take time to stock up while you’re here with

pumpkins, apples, mums and more for your harvest celebrations. Autumn’s bounty is all around.

Let’s face it. For those of us that enjoy going to yard sales, it’s a treasure hunt! You never know what item you

might find. If you have participated in the yard sale before (no matter how many times) – the selection and

landscape is always changing. With over 150 scenic miles of treasure hunting opportunities, you can’t miss!

Not only are there yard sales and bargains galore, but there are numerous small shops all around, farmers’

markets, produce stands and eateries along the route which are also treasures themselves. You might want to

extend your stay to linger longer – or plan a weekend getaway for the coming months – or maybe a longer

vacation at another time of year. The variety of mouth-watering barbeque alone is enough to keep you coming

back for more. BBQ is BIG along the Rollercoaster Yard Sale Route as is good old fashioned country cooking.

Farmers’ markets and roadside stands will be filled with the harvest. Crafters bring out their wares making it a

great time to pick up those special holiday gifts that will make for treasured memories. (Remember, it won’t be

long until Christmas time!) You are sure to find many souvenir items, flea market finds, antiques and

collectibles, too. The rich history, local parks, inviting rivers and Dale Hollow Lake offer a plethora of things

to do for your non-yard sale friends. Bring along your entire family and make a week (or more) of it and enjoy

the ride on the rollercoaster route.

The state of Tennessee recognizes the importance of successful community development best practices and its impact on sustaining economic growth.
The Three-Star program helps rural and urban Tennessee communities achieve excellence in community development by emphasizing foundational steps and targeting community strengths to improve quality of life and grow jobs.
The program sets high standards and incentives like no other state-run program in the nation. It helps communities focus on their strengths and address areas of concern to better prepare their area for economic growth.
The Three-Star program is an important component of the state’s economic strategy that helps communities set strategic goals that will truly make a difference today and well into the future.


For decades, a bustling downtown was the social, cultural and financial lifeblood of communities across America. With today’s interstates spidering through land that used to be thought of as “out there,” Main Street’s shops and diners, once filled with familiar faces, have been competing with big box stores and parking decks in sprawling bedroom communities. Here in Tennessee, we’re not ready to let downtown become a memory. Tennessee joins a growing national movement to improve the business climate in America's traditional downtowns. Main Street works with these communities to provide technical assistance, training and guidance to improve the economic, social, cultural and environmental well-being of traditional commercial districts. The “Main Street Approach to Revitalization”™ guides communities to develop strong, broad-based local organizations and to create a road map for implementation and management of the revitalization process.
