Here is a description that I found online: Dia De San Pedro: Three-day festival honoring St. Peter, the patron saint of San Pedro. Early morning boat parade. Boats and fishermen are blessed, a special mass is held and and a fiesta/jump-up follows.
Hmmmm…it sounds good but I’ve got questions: Why is this the same weekend as Lobsterfest…doesn’t that seem counter-productive? Special party just for San Pedranos funded by our town council? Or eating, drinking and fun for the whole town? Why not a huge advertising campaign…make it fun for tourists too? Why do the rides that they are setting up look like they will chew your child up and spit him out? Eek.
I’ll be having nightmares about this ride for the next few days. Look at that chainsaw like contraption in the forefront and that evil catepillar face. Many of you are thinking that I am an uptight gringo right now…and you are mostly right. But this looks crazy to me.
I love San Pedro pride. I really do love this town. You will see me on September 21st at the parade with tears in my eyes. Like actively weeping.
So this weekend, I will check out this event and get back to you, my faithful 19 followers.
Quick aside: Good Morning, San Pedro….I love you guys and the show. Doing that every morning at 7am is HARD WORK and I try to tune in every morning. But PLEASE…no more 4 minute commercial from Hummingbird Furniture. I know they are a sponsor, I know they have great furniture and It’s good information the first 3 times…but it is brutally long. Makes me change the channel.
