“Lucille Genovese gets into the spirit of the Chamber’s three-day sidewalk bazaar that started today.”
– Thursday, Aug 3, 1978, Gary Langer photo –above the fold– clipping from the Gloucester Daily Times.
Main Street’s 58th Annual Gloucester Sidewalk Bazaar opens today led by Gloucester Downtown Assoc. Sashay down Main Street while it’s closed to regular traffic for three special days.
Toodeloos’ Bears, wearing lots of sunscreen, await the planting of a new tree. The Old Tree was causing dangerous passage, but in one week’s time the tree was uprooted, and a new sidewalk put in place, just in time for the Gloucester Sidewalk Bazaar coming this Thursday August 6th – Saturday August 8th, to downtown.

Sidewalk Bazaar 2013
Thursdays during the Bazaar are usually very slow, but not this one, as you can see. We’re looking to the west toward the end of Main Street.
Too busy to eat but famished, I escaped to Passports up the street. The owner, Eric, was outside serving up lobster rolls, and late in the day they were reduced to $10 from $12. They’re made Joey C. style, with mayo and no or minimal condiments. There was probably a full lobster in this sandwich, and I apologize for eating 1/4 of it before taking a picture. The willpower is weak when you’re hungry. Passports will have them again tomorrow.
Interesting aside: While struggling to remember the correct phrase for “the willpower is weak,” I considered going into Jalapenos to ask, but that might have been kind of weird. But just then, a couple came into the gallery. It was, I found out, Kay Lazor, a reporter for the Boston Globe, and her husband, who voluntarily helps her with editing (he was an editor for the Boston Herald). They thought “willpower” was good, and corrected my usage of commas. I don’t know them, but I realize I need to brush up on my “AP Stylebook” and “Strunk and White’s Elements of Style.” Life is so interesting, and tomorrow will be a zoo on Main Street and in the gallery. I rush forward to meet it. http://www.boston.com/lifestyle/health/blogs/white-coat-notes/2013/07/30/summer-first-batch-mosquitoes-with-eee-found-amherst/zUCgZIuxPt7kIHdPi5kFRK/blog.html
Tomorrow we’ll be open at 9am. Outside we’ll feature Laura Jardullo (left) of the Dress Code with her feathered hair bands, and I’ll have 50 newly (today) arrived pieces of Dave Matthews’ pottery at discounted prices. Photo taken in front of the gallery.

At the Sidewalk Bazaar today I spoke with Henry Allen and David Wesson who said they are working on a new children’s stage production for their Summer Stock Theatre Club taking place at the Cape Ann YMCA. They say they are in need of young actors between the ages of 6-12 and will be taking place from August 5 through the 16th. They hope Good Morning Gloucester can help get the word out to aspiring actors! The story is a maritime mystery using all things Gloucester – places, names, old sea stories, etc More information is available at (978) 283-0470 Sounds like fun and from the energy of these actors it will be!
Ran across GMG contributors Charlie Carroll and David Cox today at the Sidewalk Bazaar. Lord I am hoping they were really only comparing the difference of their lens sizes…
You know what they say about these guys with the big lenses right? Overcompensating for a lack of size somewhere else?
More from Lowell-
The 54th Annual Gloucester Sidewalk Bazaar was a success! Main Street was a hot, happening, fun filled place to be for three days!
I would like to personally thank Linda Palazola of Palazola’s Sporting Goods, Joe Ciolino of The Weathervane and Christine Orlando of Kids’ Unlimited for their continued dedication to the Gloucester Sidewalk Bazaar.
I can assure you that without the commitment of these folks the Sidewalk Bazaar would not have happen and we would have lost a Gloucester Tradition. I feel honored to have been part of the event for the last two years.
The summer is always a busy time for everyone, and we would not have been able to have such a great event if it wasn’t for the commitment of this amazing community. Gloucester should be proud.
I’d like to thank Mayor Carolyn Kirk and especially Jim Duggan who was always willing to help address any concerns, City Clerk, Linda Lowe who guided me through the new permitting process, Mark Cole and Rose LoPiccolo of the DPW- street closing and trash are always hot topics, Food Inspector Rosalie Nicastro, Deputy Chief Steve Aiello of the Gloucester Fire Department and Lieutenant Joseph Aiello of the Gloucester Police Department both are a pleasure to work with, and of course our financial sponsors: Howard Frisch, of Horvitz & Frisch, p.c., Bank Gloucester,
Cape Ann Savings Bank and Rockport National Bank.
Lastly, but definitely not least are the team of volunteers that helped keep the event running smoothly, manning the streets and providing useful information to visitors with a smile- all for the simple love of Gloucester and a bright yellow t’ shirt: Mary Howard, Fred Bodin, Janet Robbins, Kettie Maclean, Amber Rose Rallo, Marlania Rallo, Evan Dombrowski, Josie Martell, Jack Brown, Chelsea Osborn, Joanne Marks, Pat & Phil Lambert, John Orlando, Fayette Severance, Nina Ryan Sargent, Julie Titone, Chris from Harbor Goods and Melissa and Bill Cox.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! It was fun!
