The annual 690-mile 127 Yard Sale, which runs right through Boyle County, is still scheduled for Aug. 6-9. But the COVID-19 pandemic is altering how it will look in Danville.

This year, the city of Danville will not be renting space to vendors at the fairgrounds, said Administrative Assistant to the City Engineer/Public Works Joyce Collins.

In fact, the city isn’t renting the fairgrounds or the large metal building and pavilion for private functions any time soon, she said.

“We’re waiting on the governor as to when people can gather in larger groups,” Collins said.

Last year 90 vendors rented space at the fairgrounds to sell their wares, she said, with rentals ranging from $100 to $250.
