St. Peter’s Fiesta in Gloucester

Speaking of folk imagery in the United States, this week I’ll be spending a lot of time up in Gloucester, Massachusetts, which is presenting its annual St. Peter’s Fiesta, a glorious Italian-religious-fishing-drinking festival. It runs much of this week, but if you have to pick a day come Sunday and see the beautiful procession through town, the crazy greasy pole contest, and then fireworks. See The New England Journal of Aesthetic Research’s Fiesta photo archive here.
