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!!!
Mayor Carolyn Kirk, cheers on the her departments in the Seine Boat Race.

I’m going to break this down to one a day. It is in reference to the Massachusetts Municipal Association has awarded the Gloucester HarborWalk with the Kenneth E. Pickard Municipal Innovation Award in which Gloucester competed against 351 other communities and won.
