"Official central locations" in Laclede, Pulaski and Webster counties have been announced where sellers who do not live on Route 66 may set up booths for the three-county, 100-mile Route 66 Yard Sale on Aug. 2-3.
The three locations in Laclede County are:
--Boswell Park, West Route 66, Lebanon: Sellers may set up booths free on a first-come, first-served basis along “66 Mural Drive,” the road leading to the Route 66 murals, on both days of the sale. Setups may begin at 7 a.m. each day, and a member of the Lebanon-Laclede County Route 66 Society will check you in. No setups will be allowed in shelters. Tents, tables and merchandise cannot remain on the park grounds overnight, even if you plan to sell both days. Selling must end at 6 p.m. both days. Sellers are responsible for cleaning up their own site at the end of the day. The Route 66 Society thanks the Lebanon Parks and Recreation Department for providing the space. Email questions to LebanonRoute66@gmail.com.
