A Look into Bareskin Neck
If there was one word to describe Bearskin Neck, it would be quaint.
Located only five miles away from the Beauport Hotel, Bearskin Neck is an internationally known art colony. The stretch of land is full of rustic little shops full of one of a kind items from local artists. Paintings, fine art, photography, jewelry and everything in between can be found in this picturesque area.
The History of St. Peter's Fiesta
St. Peter’s Fiesta, typically held in June, is a celebration of the Gloucester's commercial fishing and faith that has grown to become a city-wide party. The celebration offers parades of statues, icons through the streets, Seine boat races, the blessing of the city’s commercial fishing fleet, Masses, nine evenings of prayer, a carnival and, most notably, the greasy pole contest. The festival is sponsored by the Italian-American community in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
