KIRKLAND – There will be a non-denominational Blessing of the Bikes and Family Fun Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 17, at Franklin Township Park in Kirkland.

Pastors from the Kishwaukee North Cluster of churches will bless bikes. There will also be vendor booths, a kids’ zone with bicycle registration, rider gift packs by CMA Steel Witness Chapter, live bands, and a bake sale.

The event is free, but free-will offerings will be accepted for the bands.

Proceeds from the bake sale will support a mission trip the cluster churches plan to take to New Orleans.
