Weekly Photo Challenge: Rainbow Colors at St. Peter’s Fiesta, Gloucester

St. Peter's Fiesta Carnival in Gloucester, Massachusetts
St. Peter’s Fiesta Carnival in Gloucester, Massachusetts

You can’t beat a carnival for color. Each June, on the weekend closest to the Feast Day of St. Peter, the Italian-American fishing community of Gloucester, Massachusetts, comes together to celebrate the patron saint of fishermen, St. Peter. These photos are from last year’s fiesta, which opened with a carnival, music, art, and plenty of nasty-greasy-good food.

The Fiesta opens this year in St. Peter’s Square on the Gloucester waterfront on Wednesday, June 24 and ends on Sunday, June 28.
