Friday’s picture perfect summer skies made for an especially festive and at times poignant Saint Peter’s Fiesta grand opening ceremony. Festival-goers gathered at the Saint Peter’s Club and, after everyone who had participated in the day’s earlier sporting events had raced home to change, the procession carrying Saint Peter through the square and around the old city hall (American Legion building) began. Eight fishermen are given the honor of transporting Saint Peter on a specially crafted cart.Saint Peters Fiesta Gloucester -3 ©Kim Smith 2014 Saint Peters Fiesta Gloucester -6 ©Kim Smith 2014The Wagner and Sleepy Pallazola Families were given special commendations by the Fiesta committee Saint Peters Fiesta Gloucester -4 Kim Smith 2014   Saint Peters Fiesta Gloucester -2 ©Kim Smith 2014Rev.
