Broome County Celtics Pipe and Drum Bands Hypes Crowds for Parade Day

Posted:
A pretty packed house today at Giblin's Irish Pub as a local band gets spirits up for Parade Day.

The Broome County Celtics Pipe and Drum Band are making their way around the area to various locations playing some musical tunes and hyping up the crowds.

Parade Day is right around the corner. Band members are performing as a "thank you" for all of the local support over the years.

Drum Major Gates Murchie said, "In previous years we've done what was called the Guiness Toast where we would go to 16 or 17 of bars under the sponsorship of one of the local beverage dealers but they didn't do that this year so we sent one of our own up and decided to limit ourselves to 4 or 5 bars just so we didn't exhaust ourselves before Parade Day."

In addition to Giblin's the band made stops at the Blind Tiger, South Side Yanni's McGirk's and Kelly's.
