You’re not one of those people who avoids Fiesta are you?
OK, I said it. It’s the elephant in the room. We actually have friends who look at us like we’re mental patients when we say we LOVE FIESTA! There are only a few places on Earth where the whole city parties and invites tens of thousands of other people to join in. Rio and New Orleans come to mind. Not bad company for Gloucester to be in, is it? Just look at this video from last year:
The guys who didn’t get the pole aren’t cursing the winner. They’re cheering him and carrying him on their shoulders out of the water and up the street. That’s the spirit I’m talking about! A little more of this spirit on a daily basis would make all our lives better.
Plus there’s live music all over town (see full live music schedule here) and nearly everybody you run into is in a great mood for days at a time. So let’s have some fun, OK?
