Just about perfect weather to bring back the Fiesta after a 2 year hiatus due to the pandemic. The Friday Greasy Pole winner was Leo Cannavo. Saturday Greasy Pole winner was Anthony Novello. Sunday Champ Derek Hopkins who won Friday, Saturday and Sunday in 2019! On Sunday the winds were strong and during the Greasy Pole the flag was ripped from the pole. After a couple of attempts to secure it it was decided to put the flag staff up minus the flag. Here I included shots from around the Fiesta.
