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.
