Saint Peter’s Fiesta Traditions Behind The Scenes- Generations Of The Linquata Family Making The Fiesta Pins
Huge thanks to the Linquata family for allowing us into their home and sharing their story of family, love and tradition. It is families like this that make it all so special for all of us to enjoy. So many stories, so much love, so much passion, and who wins? Everyone in our close knit community. The people who think the Fiesta is about the carnival and the rides are missing out. They have no idea how much work goes in behind the scenes by beautiful families like the Linquatas. Thanks for all you do to make it the most special time of year for so many.
Your labor of love and dedication will not go unnoticed if we have anything to say about it.
Look for tomorrow’s video with the Favazzas who make the Greasy Pole Flags. GMG behind the scenes for Saint Peter’s Fiesta 2014.
