This year, the annual Occoquan Town Blessing will take place Sunday at 5:30 p.m. at the church on the corner of Commerce and Washington Streets. The beloved tradition, held in a historic church, is hosted by members of Ebenezer Baptist Church.
Last year, Rev. Charles Lundy led the service, which included comments from Occoquan Mayor Earnie Porta, a reading of Luke 2, and worship music from the choir.
After the town is blessed for another year, Madigan's Waterfront will host a free town holiday party on the second floor of the restaurant.
See our gallery of pictures from last year's blessing service. And check out the Lake Ridge Patch 2012 Holiday Guide for recent and upcoming holiday happenings.
