Motorcycles, riders blessed in Wilton

WILTON – Motorcycle enthusiasts parked their bikes in front of the Second Congregational Church on a bright Sunday, May 21, morning for a traditional Blessing of the Motorcycles.

The Rev. Dr. Regina Kinney offered a prayer for a safe summer of riding, and then blessed each of the bikes in turn, wishing rider each a summer of fun.

The ceremony was followed by refreshments and conversation.

The tradition began in the mid-1990s.
