Blessing of Cars set at Bald Knob

The third annual Blessing of the Cars is planned May 14 at the Cross of Peace on Bald Knob Mountain near Alto Pass.

Organizers said that the Blessing of the Cars is a family-style event and, in many ways, a small car show at Cross of Peace. 

The event begins at 10 a.m. and concludes by 3 p.m. 

Drivers and passengers drive their vehicle to the circle drive at the Cross of Peace for a blessing while in their car. Then they will drive their car onto the hill and park among the other cars. 

Those who attend are welcome to bring lawn chairs and pop-up canopies for protection from the sun.

Automobiles from all eras are welcome at the event: antiques, collector's cars, show cars, convertibles and special vehicles.
