The St. Peter's Fiesta is a photographers delight, there's a photo op at almost every turn. Though I do this as a hobby with no deadlines to meet I love to show off our area to the rest of the world.
In three days of covering the water events with a pie eating contest thrown in, I clicked the shutter 861 times! That's 861 images to go through one by one then picking out the best to fit a selective sequence. With so many photos to screen there are always photos that I just plain missed. Images that should have belonged to other posts to maximize the story I was trying to tell.
I don't consider my posts of the Fiesta as complete, there's so much going on and I wish I could be at several places at the same time such as covering more of the Seine Boat Races. At least I can say I attempted a logistical nightmare to catch what I could. And perhaps you can appreciate what a great tradition and event the St. Peter's Fiesta truly is.

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"!
