ASHLAND — Gas up and hit the Country Music Highway this weekend as that 144-mile-long ribbon of highway through the hills, U.S. 23, hosts the Highway 23 Yard Sale that runs from Greenup County to Letcher County.

The 12th annual sale coordinates sales along the highway that runs through seven counties from about 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, May 23-25.

Locally, Boyd County's organized site will be at Sargent's Tires (intersection of U.S. 23 and Hoods Creek Pike, as you go into Westwood). Vendors can pick their spots — first come, first served. Vendors should come early because it gets crowded. Signs will mark the location. Garbage cans are available for trash, and visitor hospitality bags will be distributed to the vendors.
