Louis "Lou" Perry was crowned Fiesta Friday Greasy Pole champ with a fourth-round victory on Friday, June 29, 2007 at Pavilion Beach. After very little drama through the first three rounds, Perry, who is a four-year veteran of walking the Greasy Pole, almost casually conquered the 40-foot walk early in the fourth round. Perry did not slip or slow down at all on his final walk.

Mitchell, a 23-year-old Gloucester native and member of the 2009 senior seine boat champions Kaos, has been stationed in Afghanistan with the United States Army National Guard since late March. He was unsure if he would get the leave he requested, which not coincidentally came on St. Peter's Fiesta weekend.
