HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (MERCER)—Lia Fail Pipes and Drums could not let a St. Patrick’s Day go without a performance. The band was scheduled to play in New York City today at the annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade, but the COVID-19 virus precautions canceled any large gatherings. Today some members of the band decided to have a small performance to honor the day while still practicing save distancing with an outdoor performance and maintaining distances. The performance was at 2 pm in front of the Hamilton Township Fire Department, Station 17 and a small group of people who were out and about in Sayen Gardens watched from a distance across the street. Lia Fail Pipes and Drums were also scheduled to play in the Hamilton Township and Robbinsville Saint Patrick’s parades that hae also been canceled due to the COVID-19 emergency.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day everyone!
