OROVILLE, Calif. - The sixth annual Mile Long Yard Sale is happening 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 31 in Oroville.

The yard sale stretches one mile down Montogomery Street near Sank Park in Oroville.

Neighbors from far and wide gather in the Oroville Community and stroll through the downtown area to look for unique treasures.

"It's just a fun event it gets people in all the way from Sacramento to Redding," Bernadette North, Downtown Business Association Committee member said.

Homeowners and business owners open their yards and doors for browsing shoppers.

"We'll have a little table in front of our store and its just thing that is - we're going into holiday season so we take the sale items that we already have or some items that we've had for a while for summer and they'll get deep discounted for the event," Bernadette said.

Bernadette North, who is leading the event, also works at Kusel's Big Store, close to the midpoint of the Mile Long Yard Sale.

"We have a lot of amazing antique stores in town and a lot of people will come from out of town and they'll do the yard sale, then hit the antique shops," North said.

North said the fun doesn't stop there.

"People are just happy to be out and about," North said. "After they're done they go eat at the local restaurants." 

An Oroville resident said it's all family-oriented, it's just people bringing their stuff to try and sell it.

What does it mean for Oroville to have an event like this?

"Oh, I think especially because of what happened in Paradise. There's a lot of Paradise people that have now moved to Oroville and it brings everyone together," said Oroville resident, Ted Lucas.
