Yard Sale Trail Takes Over Shoreline

The main thoroughfare along the lakeshore and river is going to be busy later this week as people flock to the eastern part of Michigan’s thumb coast for the annual Yard Sale Trail. The weekend-long event takes place along Lake Huron and the St. Clair River with over 200 miles of antiques, yard sales, and much more. Twelve Blue Water Area communities from Sebewaing to Algonac will participate.

In addition to the garage sales, the route travels through several quaint communities such as Marine City, St. Clair, Port Huron, Lexington, Port Sanilac, Harbor Beach, Port Hope, and Port Austen.  Those communities are full of unique shops and boutiques, museums full of local history, and eateries for convenience and comfort. The official kickoff is Friday, August 9th,  and the event continues through the end of Sunday. If you’re out and about this weekend, remember to slow down and be extra careful to watch for people crossing M-29 and M-25.
