The clock is ticking…Only 7 shopping days left to purchase your Fiesta Whites”!
For generations it’s been customary to wear “White” clothing on Fiesta Sunday. As far back as l I can remember during the weeks leading up to fiesta in early June, our mother Pat, aunts, and grandmothers on both our paternal and maternal sides of our family shopped for Fiesta White clothing, for the entire family. They were not alone. Our entire Fishing Community was out shopping for white clothing. The Big question around town was “Do You Have Your Fiesta Whites and Wardrobe Yet?” Growing up the streets of downtown Gloucester on Fiesta Sunday looked like a sea of white. Last night while leaving the St. Peter Novena, I overheard a group of women talking about how they had their families, children and grandchildren’s “Fiesta Whites” all ready for next Sunday, along with their traditional Nautical theme outfits for Fiesta Saturday’s Races, on Pavilion Beach. I love that today this customary tradition continues!
I look forward to capturing everyone again this year in their “Fiesta Whites” & Nautical Theme clothing at next Saturday Races and Sunday Parade…Get shopping, and smile for the camera!
