Father Jim blessed the fishing fleet in front of the Fishermen’s Memorial Sunday afternoon under a beautiful sky. Bless our fishermen and their vessels.
What a race these young men ran today! The seas were a little rough and the wind wasn’t a friend today but Knot-e Boys, Renegade and Family Strokes put on a great show for all the fans on the beach! This post was rushed out to get it in quickly, more coverage tomorrow.
The winds and seas were kicking up which made rowing even tougher, but Kaos, Merger and ZFG gave spectators a great race to watch. Congratulations ZFG! Strong race, great finish.
This kid has got something special figured out in the Greasy Pole competition! Congratulations! Derek Hopkins takes it again on Championship Sunday, even though the flag has to be re-placed onto the pole several times due to the winds.
Coming up roses…
Just to clear up any confusion here is a clarification on the Magnolia Pier seasonal dinghy outhauls design as provided by Mayor Verga’s office.

From our correspondent on the street, Chris McCarthy:
The beating sun made the whites super white and the children fade, but the procession came off without any obvious hitches! It was so wonderful to see so many people supporting this traditions. How many do you recognize?
If you’ve never taken a few moments to appreciate the St. Peter’s Fiesta Greasy Pole Shrine…or if you live far away and aren’t able, please enjoy this video of the winners and Champions. If viewing on Facebook, be certain to click on the link to view the video. It is a bit long, because I wanted people to be able to enjoy each photo if they can’t see it in person.
The flag was claimed early in the second round so there aren’t too many photos of those who made the attempt prior to Anthony Novello’s walk but here are some of the intrepid walkers on their run in the second round. Lessons in acrobatics, balance, dismount and costumes. Great contest!
I flat ran out of time to post photos along with the video of the Junior Mens Seine Boat Race competitors last night, so here you go! Mens Seine Boat racing has a bright future in Gloucester. Well done Renegade, Knot-e Boys and Tonno Crew!
I stumbled onto this YouTube video which is not dated or verified but is supposed to be taken in Gloucester. I thought you might enjoy it anyhow. If you have any clues about this please feel free to reach out. I hope you are enjoying the return of Fiesta 2022!
