Residents and stores clean out their attics, garages & basements to create the Most Spectacular Garage Sale.
A trail of distinctive colored ribbons will identify participating garage sales from Alma on the southern end of the Wisconsin side of Lake Pepin, north along Hwy. 35 through Nelson, Pepin, Stockholm, and Maiden Rock to Bay City, WI. The trail then crosses west to Minnesota at Red Wing, MN and heads south on Hwy. 61 through Frontenac, Lake City, Camp LaCupolis, Reads Landing, Wabasha, Kellogg and Winona.
Bargain hunters can start anywhere along the route beginning at about 8AM with closing time set for about 5PM all three days. Rain or Shine!
Mississippi Valley Partners sponsors the 100-Mile Garage Sale during the first weekend of May each year. Local residents and bargain hunters from distant cities enjoy church lunches and shopping amid the spring scenery of Lake Pepin and the Mississippi River Valley.
Follow the balloons & ribbons.
