The Olvera Street Merchants Association Foundation hosts its annual Blessing of the Animals celebration on Saturday April 20 at the Pico House for a pet-friendly afternoon. Whether your pet lives on land, in water, or flies through the air, all creatures are welcome to receive a blessing for this sacred ceremony. The line to receive blessing begins at 1 p.m. and will take place in front of the Pico House on Main Street. The blessing begins at 2 p.m. led by Archbishop Jose Gomez, and the event also includes entertainment from noon to 4 p.m.
Though the blessing is rooted in Catholic tradition, all individuals of varying faiths are welcome to attend.
