Fiesta Sunday Whites!

Wearing white on Fiesta Sunday has been a Sicilian tradition honoring St. Peter for generations. Weeks before Fiesta mothers and grandmothers shop for their families Fiesta Whites! Hundreds of people wearing their Fiesta Whites lined the streets of Gloucester during yesterday’s procession around central Gloucester. I personally thank all who allowed me to snap of photos of their beautiful children. How blessed are we to live in a community with deep rooted tradition, and culture. VIVA St. Pietro & VIVA Gloucester!
