Still Time to Enjoy the Greasy Pole and Saint Peter's Feast...and Some Great Beach Days
There's still time to experience Gloucester's Saint Peter's Feast and catch the world-famous greasy pole contest -- and the weather is expect to make this the best of the four-day celebration in downtown Gloucester. Despite the sometimes wet and cloudy weather, the Feast has entertained us with music at the bandstand, food and amusement rides at the carnival, and the boat races and greasy pole challenges that lead to today's final championship contest. You can check out a schedule of events here -- and the new Fiesta webcam -- but we can tell you there will be even more of what we've seen the past few days plus the Blessing of the Fleet, religious services and the procession through the streets of Gloucester. And if you'd like to grab some time on the beach, the weather should cooperate for you as well today. The Feast goes late into the night, and when you're done you can come rest up at the Blue Shutters. We still have rooms for tonite -- and by the way, tomorrow and Tuesday promise to be great beach days!
