The Annual Blessing of the Bikes

I thought the  Blessing of the Bikes was an event that happened only locally. With the wonders of Google,  I learned that it's a tradition that takes place nationwide. According to Wikipedia, this event started in 1999 as a mass blessing of bicycles at a cathedral in New York City.

The local Bike Blessing is sponsored by the Hollister Top Hatters Motorcycle Club.  This year the event will take place on March 24. It starts with a check-in at Whiskey Creek Saloon on 5th and East Streets, between 11 a.m. and noon. The bikers then will proceed to Sacred Heart Church for the blessing ceremony.

Afterwards, the group will be holding a BBQ fundraiser at Bolado Park, in which proceeds go to the San Benito High School Scholarship Fund. The public is invited. Click here for the details.
