Message to Greasy Polers and Organizers: We Cannot See Your Hilarious Costumes in the Enclosed Boat

From the audience’s point of view, the boat that is being used to transport the Greasy Polers is not as good as last year’s boat because it is enclosed.  We Cannot See Your Awesome Costumes. Last year an open floating barge was used and it was so so much fun to be able to see what you were wearing.

Clips from last year’s Sunday Greasy Pole have been borrowed, with my permission, by many other media outlets, including Chronicle and the HarborWalk story videos, in particular, the opening sequence.

We want to see your hilarious costumes. Please bring back the open barge!!!

WCVB Channel 5 Chronicle Gloucester Episode

As many are aware, tonight at 7:30, WCVB Channel 5 Chronicle is airing an episode featuring Gloucester. This is in and of itself is fantastic; they also borrowed a bit my footage from my Greasy Pole Sunday film that I created for Good Morning Gloucester.

Special thanks are owed Joey for making Good Morning Gloucester the ‘go to place’ for people like Maggie Harper, the producer of Chronicle, to discover more about what makes the heart of our community beat. During the entire week of Fiesta, then followed by Independence Day events, GMG covered all, posting countless feature stories, schedule of events, photos, and videos.

Thank you Joey C for all you do for our fair city!

As Gloucester’s Powerhouse of Positivity would say ~ YEAH BABY! Chronicle Tonight! Boom! We Got That!
