part of that. TikTok trends this year have
mainly been targeted at setting goals and

(Above) The traditional bagpipe, a huge symbol of Irish culture, has been played for every single Win-
ter Park St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Bagpipes are woodwind instruments with reed pipes that are sound-
ed by the pressure of wind emitted from a bag squeezed by the player’s arm. The players typically

wear kilts, belt buckles, and other accessories of the traditional Irish bagpiper. There’s no St. Patrick’s

Day without hearing the tunes of an Irish bagpipe! Photo by Alyssa Wiboon.
