Blessing of the Hounds
November 28, 2019
Come to The annual Blessing of the Hounds immediately preceding Aiken Hounds’ formal Opening Meet. The Blessing on Thanksgiving Day at 11 a.m. at Memorial Gate in the Woods. This traditional ceremony and beloved tradition lasts about 30 minutes. While, the public is welcome. In addition, there is no parking at the South Boundary entrance, but attendees may park downtown. Certainly, one should allow 30 minutes to walk from Laurens Street to Memorial Gate. No motorized vehicles or dogs are permitted in the Woods for this event. Even more, there is no charge.
