It was a great big and diverse field of about 1000 runners. A big fun time.
At tonight’s St. Peter’s Fiesta opening ceremony, Mayor Romeo Theken announced the citizens of Gloucester are now the proud owners of Beautiful Pavilion Beach. More information to follow.

A peak at the carnival games, rides, and concessions, early in the morning, slowly waking up, wondering what the day has in store….
Good Morning, Fiesta.
St Peter’s Fiesta is also celebrated in the small fishing village where I was born Lajes do Pico Azores.
The tradition is a bit different; women carry baskets of sweet bread “rosquilhas”, the bread is blessed and than distributed to the people, they celebrate mass in the small chapel (San Pedo’s). The village, guests and family sit down and share a meal. The events may be different, but the bringing together of community and family is the same. Viva St Pietro / Pedro / Peter.Viva
