Baldwin Businesses Booming for Blessing of the Bikes

The Blessing of the Bikes draws tons of traffic to the small town of Baldwin.

And it’s great for local businesses.

Cattail Cafe is in a prime spot for people traveling down U.S. 10.

They see double the amount of customers during the blessing weekend.

The owner says getting to know people from out of town makes this annual event pretty enjoyable.

“This is like the best weekend because everybody is really nice and friendly and we just have a lot of fun with them… We usually have people waiting in line because no biker travels alone. There’s always a group of them,” says Missi Welch, the owner and manager.

The cafe says the blessing weekend also helps them prep for Memorial Day Weekend, another time they see a boost in traffic.
