Gloucester’s Holiday Parade is on once again after a 2-year Covid hiatus. The parade will kick off on Sunday, November 27th, at 3:00 pm from the State Fish Pier. The parade route travels down Parker Street to Main Street, and then down Western Avenue to the Tree Lighting Ceremony at Kent Circle. 

Organizers are looking for floats, groups of enthusiastic marchers, school groups and musical entertainment. The only requirement is that the entry have a holiday theme. Entrants will be eligible to win a first, second or third place trophy. Mayor Greg Verga will lead the judge’s float this year. 

This year’s Grand Marshals are going to be the 60 members of the Gloucester Rotary Club, who will be celebrating 100 years of service to our Gloucester community.

The parade will end up at Kent Circle for the Gloucester Tree Lighting Ceremony which will take place at dusk. Following that, Santa will be available in his sleigh for picture taking.

Please contact Joe Ciolino at the Weathervane at 978-281-1227 to register for the parade.

GHS Baseball Open Door Pick Up

Hello,

I’m not sure if your blog is an appropriate spot for this, but I figured I’d give it a shot. I coach the Gloucester High School baseball team and I like to get the players involved in things outside of baseball. Last year, we collected over 700 pounds of food to donate to the Open Door in one day. 

I am wondering if you could mention that players will be driving around Gloucester on Thursday 11/17 after school to collect bags/boxes of donatable (non-perishable, peanut butter, cereal, canned goods, soups, pastas, etc.) foods. All people have to do is email their name and address to rgentile2@gloucesterschools.com and I will send them a reminder email the week of. 

No worries if this is not something you can or want to do, just figured I would ask! Have a great day.

Color Blocked Cows

I’ve never seen cows like these. I really wish it was a better photo. When I first passed by the field they were close to the road, but I couldn’t stop. On my way home I made a point to find a safe spot to pull over and watch them for a bit. They had moved to the back of the field. I love their three bold “stripes”….I’ll have to do some research as to what type of cow they are. Unless anyone of you know!
