12:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. Blessing of the Bikes
Stop by Starved Rock Lodge's East parking lot and have your motorcycle blessed by local clergy in one of two ceremonies. The blessings remind us that life is a journey and we need to ask for God's protection. A great kick-off for biking season! Open to the public.
Last year we went there for bike blessing, was cold like 43 deg., but we had fun.
