You don’t have to pay the pipers to hear them play.
The Snohomish County Firefighters Pipes and Drums will join St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in Seattle and Everett Saturday and Sunday.
The Pipes and Drums will march and play in the Seattle St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which begins at 12:30 p.m. at Fourth Avenue and Jefferson Street, south of Yesler, in Seattle.
