One of the biggest events of the year here in Gloucester is about to kick off -- the St. Peter's Feast, otherwise known in these parts as "The Fiesta". It all begins tonight and runs through this weekend, with music, parades, religious celebrations, fireworks...and plenty of food and fun. One of the highlights is the famed "greasy pole" -- which you need to see to believe. If you've enjoyed the feast in the past, you're welcome to join us again; if this is new to you, it's something you definitely should experience. You'll find all the details about this year's feast online -- and posted at the Blue Shutters, which is a great stopping off point for your Fiesta fun.

A few weeks ago we celebrated the coming of summer with our beach bash -- if you get our e-newsletter, you heard about this and got a look at some of the fun (if you don't get our newsletter, call or email us and we'll get you on the list). We've had some nice days since then -- but the best is yet to come. There are still some spots available this summer season, but rooms are going fast. Contact us soon if you're thinking of staying with us. The newsletter also looks ahead to some of the summer events planned here on Cape Ann. Don't miss out!
