St. Peter's Fiesta 2013 !
The weather was kind to this years St. Peter's Fiesta, at least for the busy weekend. I ended up taking over 500 pictures for the water events and for this post I'm highlighting Sunday's Greasy Pole and Seine Boat Races.
Crazy Fiesta hats!
Big crowd on Pavilion Beach.
Walkers gather for the boat ride out.

It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
