365- Musical Instrument


The St. Patrick’s Day parade in Belmar is an event that brings people from all parts of New Jersey. There are numerous pipe and drum corps marching in this parade and each one sounds as good as the next.

I’ve become fond of the sound of bag pipes when accompanied with drums. Everybody marching must have been freezing as the temp. was 34 with a 15 mph wind. Although I’m sure a few pints may have been consumed before marching to help the procession.
