St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow and what better way to spend it than with BC Celtic! So we’ll be hitting some spots around town ALL day.
Our evening events start with parading through Wegman’s at 5pm, then performances at Binghamton University at 6pm, South City Publick House at 7pm, and McGirk’s around 7:50pm (before the Reveler’s performance). Earlier in the day we’ll be making some small stops at the Doubletree and a local elementary school, then we’re over to the Colonial at 2pm and possibly other spots downtown. So we’ll be all over and have something for all ages. You can also follow our list of events over at BingPop.com.

On April 9th, Broome County Celtic Pipes & Drums will be traveling to New York City to participate in the Tartan Day Parade! And we will be offering the opportunity for a lucky raffle winner and a guest to not only attend but participate in the parade with us! For those not familiar with Tartan Week and the Tartan Day parade, it is a great cultural celebration with a parade up 6th ave between 45th and 55th streets, right in the heart of Manhattan. Much fun will be had. The winner and a guest will travel with the band, carry the BCCPD banner in front of the band for the parade, receive $100 to be spent on the trip and spend the day celebrating with the band in NYC.
Raffle tickets ($20) will be available at McGirk’s Irish Pub in Chenango Bridge, the Corner Drug Store and Gift Shop in Endicott, or you can send a direct message via the band Facebook page or website. Good luck!
