SARA FAVAZZA UNVEILING THE NEW SAINT PETER STATUE

Although meticulously maintained over the years, the Saint Peter statue is becoming increasingly dried out and fragile, as explained by Joe Novello, master of ceremonies at the Saint Peter’s Fiesta official opening event. Sara Favazza hopes the original Saint Peter statue will eventually be retired to the Cape Ann Museum, and perhaps live next to the Our Lady of Good Voyage statue.

TWO SAINT PETERS SIDE BY SIDE – CAN YOU TELL THE NEW FROM THE ORIGINAL?

The beautiful new Saint Peter statue was unveiled at Friday night’s Fiesta opening celebration. Sara Favazza, daughter and tenth child of Captain Salvatore Favazza and Maria Lucido Favazza, did the honors. Salvatore Favazza commissioned the original Saint Peter’s statue in 1926 and in 1927, Gloucester celebrated its first Saint Peter’s Fiesta.

That great Sail Boston photograph you saw (besides those from GMG) or article you read was taken from the Mystic. The talent they bustled about Boston Harbor among the Sail Boston Tall Ships included journalists like the one that shared this photo back to them.

FIESTA BABY PLOVERS!

Four of the sweetest little Piping Plover chicks hatched Thursday morning, June 22, at Good Harbor Beach. They are all beautiful and perfectly formed and healthy. Within hours of hatching, the mini-marshmallow-rockets were zooming and tumbling about the shore. Mom Joy and Dad Joe are in full on protective mode, doing their best to chase seagulls and people out of their territory.

Don’t mess with Mama Joy!

Last year the East Gloucester neighborhood kids named the parents, Joy and Joe; and chicks PuffPuff, FluffFluff, and Tootsie Pop. The parents are most likely the same pair as they have nested in nearly the exact same spot as last year. Comment in the comment section for name suggestions if you would like. Wouldn’t it be great if the four names were somehow Fiesta inspired 🙂

Good Harbor Beach is going to be very crowded this weekend. If the chicks manage to survive the first ten days, their odds of surviving increase dramatically.

How we can all help the Piping Plover chicks survive:

1) Perhaps the most important point to understand is that within hours of hatching, Piping Plover chicks are on the move. They soon begin to explore outside the symbolically roped off area. Keep an eye out for the chicks. Educate friends and family that they may see these tiny vulnerable creatures on the beach. Do not approach the chicks or adults, but observe quietly from a distance. Mom and Dad Plover will let you know if you are too close.

2) Don’t leave behind or bury trash or food on the beach. All garbage attracts predators such as crows, seagulls, foxes, and coyotes, and all four of these creatures EAT plover eggs and chicks.

3) Do not linger near the Piping Plovers or their nests. Activity around the Plovers also attracts gulls and crows.

4) Keep dogs off the beach at all times of the day and evening.

 

Snuggling next to Mom for warmth.
