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!

BREAKING NEWS: Henri Smith @ The Studio on Saturday featuring Grammy-Winner Amadee Castenell

Henri Smith at the Larcom Theatre   March 2014

This is a big coup for the new Studio — and it’ll be your last chance to see Henri Smith anywhere around here without buying a ticket for quite some time.

Joining Henri will be many of the guys who were on stage with him at The Larcom Theatre in March, including Grammy-Award winning Amadee Castenell on sax and a big surprise!

Don’t expect there to be any tables left on Saturday, so you’d better call (978) 879-4896 to make a reservation.  Do it now!

Henri will be back at the Larcom Theatre in December for a very special Christmas show.  If you’ve signed up for our free Concert Club, you’ll be able to get tickets before they go on sale to the public (click here if you haven’t signed up).  More details on this concert coming in a few days . . .

Here’s a taste of what you can expect this Saturday — check out Amadee’s sax and flute solos!

Standers vs Sitters On Pavilion Beach. Is There really any debate on this one?

Rick Terselic submits-

Hi Joey:  There was a significant amount of friction between the folks
on Pavilion Beach during the Greasy Pole competitions this weekend.
I’m of the old school that says standing room only!  The sitters were
not only taking up more than their share of beach, they were yelling
(cursing at times) at anyone who was blocking their view. From what I
witnessed each afternoon it could have easily resulted in a rumble
many times over.  How about setting up a poll and let’s see what the
GMG Community thinks about this issue? Viva!! Rick Terselic

I’m not sure there should even be a debate about this.  If it’s standing room only it’s standing room only during the Greasy Pole and Seine boat races.  Obviously if you have some old folks that can’t stand up you move to the side for them but people really can’t expect the whole beach to part for them o have direct sight lines to the pole if everyone else is standing up.  that’s just plain ridiculous.

But we’ll poll it anyway and leave your comments below in the comment section.
