Fiesta Sunday Whites!
Wearing white on Fiesta Sunday has been a Sicilian tradition honoring St. Peter for generations. Weeks before Fiesta mothers and grandmothers shop for their families Fiesta Whites! Hundreds of people wearing their Fiesta Whites lined the streets of Gloucester during yesterday’s procession around central Gloucester. I personally thank all who allowed me to snap of photos of their beautiful children. How blessed are we to live in a community with deep rooted tradition, and culture. VIVA St. Pietro & VIVA Gloucester!

Some props need to go to this walker. A little help here….because I missed his name. We all know the first round of the Greasy Pole is a “Courtesy Round” and the flag can not be grabbed. But it is clear that victory would have been his if he were allowed to pull the flag down with him. Actually….with his hand wrapped around the pole…I’m not sure how he was able to leave it up there.
GoPro footage of the final round of Saint Peter’s Fiesta Greasy Pole Sunday, Kyle Barry’s win, and the triumphant swim to shore.
Pretty exciting to be in the midst of it….even if my board is now covered in grease.
Good times. Congratulations, Kyle!

Fiesta- proud of the contributors, once again the GMG team decimated all other media outlets on Fiesta coverage and Joey has not been down to the Fiesta once this year, it was all the team minus Joey.

Oh what a day on Saturday. Had lunch with guest at the Beauport Hotel… Great food and the service by Matt and food was awesome, then the view.. what more can be said. Watching re-greasing the pole and that interesting stand up paddle board. More fun on Sunday.
Buona Fiesta Sunday Everyone!
