LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - Hundreds of motorcyclists gathered in Laurel Saturday for an annual afternoon of fellowship and prayer.

The "Blessing of the Bikes" at the Walmart brought together about 250 bikers from several motorcycle clubs for a devotional message and some prayers with each other.

It was the 6th year for the event, that was open to all bikers.

A similar event will be held in Jackson Sunday and in Gautier in two weeks.
