Photos from Alice Gardner’s children’s book launch party will post tomorrow when I have a little more time. It was lots of fun and there was a great turnout. Here is Crazy Hat Lady Amy Clayton at the Sawyer Free Library teaching children the call and response “Me chi samiou tutti mutti – Viva San Pietro!”
Gloucester’s own Fiesta Hat Ladies Robyn and Amy with Mayor Sefatia, sister Rose, niece Lia, and friends. I can’t wait to see the sister’s whimsical, wild, and wonderful creations this year!!
The Crazy Hat Ladies write, “The Crazy Hat Ladies of Fiesta have been invited to the largest folk festival in the US in Lowell, Massachusetts over the weekend of July 29th and 30th. This is our 2nd time being invited to come and share our love for the St. Peter’s Fiesta and our love for our community. We will be representing Gloucester and with our hats with people from all over. We will have our hats and a photo display of the history of St. Peter’s Fiesta.. We will also proudly distribute Gloucester Visitor guides to promote our beautiful city. We hope you can make it to this cultural event that has lots of music, cultural cuisine and entertainment and of course…
THE CRAZY HAT LADIES OF FIESTA”

This year’s hats are over the top fantastic and brimming with witty surprises. Be sure to stop and say hello and have a look see Sunday.

Lisa Smith, Cape Ann TV producer writes, “I have a video for you to post on GMG: “The Crazy Hat Ladies Party.” Sister’s Robyn & Amy have been having a party on Saturday afternoons for 20 years and making crazy hats for 12 years. The hats are incredible! And they are so much fun.” Thanks Lisa for sharing!
The detail is amazing on the creations by Amy, Robyn and the kids. The St. Peter’s Club was added this year. Incredible!
