Speaking of cheese rolling, it has to be mentioned as such an odd but memorable event. There isn’t much finesse to the event as it involves running down a 200 yard hill… Chasing after a wheel of cheese. Yes it is just as chaotic and fun as it sounds, for as peculiar an event as it is, the history it holds is near and dear to the residents of Gloucester.
