40-mile garage sale to extend through eight towns


DURAND—A 40-mile garage sale that extends from town to town along Illinois Route 75 will take place Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 6 – 8, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Towns participating include South Beloit, Rockton, Harrison, Shirland, Durand, Davis, Rock City and Dakota. All towns are in Illinois.

Individual homeowners in each town and along the highway will host their own garage sale. In addition, the towns will offer visitors activities such as flea markets, food, crafts and other enticements.
