Leaving the altar for the procession around Fort Square
Each year hundreds gather at the altar around 11:30 pm Fiesta Sunday evening, to line up for the ceremonial procession of parading St. Peter around Fort Square before returning him to the St. Peter’s Club window. This procession around Fort Square marks the official end of The Feast Of St. Peter.

The voices of parade goers screaming the St. Peter Chant “Ma Chi siammo Tutti Mutti”….”Viva San Pedro” echoes’ throughout the downtown area of Gloucester.
Our twins, BJ and Amanda’s first Fiesta Sunday in 1999 with my mother Pat and her father, Joe Ciaramitaro, AKA legendary “Joe Popcorn” of Gloucester, dressed in their first Fiesta Whites!
Today BJ and Amanda will be walking in the St. Peter’s Fiesta Parade carrying my paternal Grandfathers boat oar “The Benjamin C” with dozens of other carriers honoring the legacy of the Gloucester Fishing Fleet.
I will be photographing everyone wearing Fiesta Whites along the parade route…smile for the camera!
