(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-

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.
