The Greasy Pole returns to Gloucester for the first time since 2019

GLOUCESTER – The beloved New England tradition is back for the first time since 2019.

The Greasy Pole Competition was held Friday in Gloucester.

Men and women try to be the first to reach the end of the 45-foot slippery pole to finally capture the flag.

This event is part of the five-day Saint Peter Festival that includes parades, regattas, and blessing of the fleet.
