Blessing of the Cars

Saturday, June 17, 2017 – Blessing of the Cars Come on out for an hour or enjoy a whole day of fellowship and beautiful scenery at Bald Knob Cross in Alto Pass. This event is free and there are no entry fees. T-shirts and food will be available for sale. Free Event Decals to first 150 cars. Live music from the band Stronghold. This event was started by a few groups of Car Show enthusiasts from southern Illinois (from Murphysboro to Marion to Golconda). This is very much a family-style event, and it is in many ways a small car show at Bald Knob Cross of Peace. The event begins at 10:00 a.m. and concludes by 3:00 p.m. Drivers and passengers will drive their vehicle to the circle drive at the Cross for a blessing while in their car. Then they will drive their car onto the hill and park among the other cars. Attendees are welcome to bring lawn chairs and pop-up canopies for protection from the sun. Automobiles of all eras are welcome at this event: antique; collector’s cars; show cars; convertibles; your special vehicle; all are welcome.
