Basilica Of Saint Mary
It started in 1995 as a fundraiser to help pay for the structural restoration of the Basilica of Saint Mary. And while some money still goes towards that, the Basilica Block Party has become so much more.
The Basilica of Saint Mary hosted their first-ever Blessing of the Wheels today. It was open to owners of all types of personal wheeled transportation, including roller blades, wheel chairs, strollers, and bicycles, to name just a few.
As the Basilica of Saint Mary gets close to its 100th anniversary, it’s undergoing some makeovers.
Tickets go on sale Saturday for the 17th annual Basilica Block Party in downtown Minneapolis.
