Several members of the Newark Firefighters Pipe Band entertained a crowd, Monday evening. The pipe players were all men, dressed in kilts.
I didn't recognize any of the tunes, but believe me when I say these instruments are loud. The sound of bagpipes could be heard several blocks away.
The band's website states that the Newark Firefighters were founded 200 years ago. The pipe band was formed in 2003, in honor of their fallen comrades.
Newark, New Jersey is a city located less than 10 miles west of Manhattan, across the Hudson River.
