Pipe bands, dancers and dignitaries will show their pride this Friday at the annual parade up Fifth Avenue.

One group gearing up for the big day is the Breezy Point Catholic Club Pipes and Drums Band. The group stopped by CBS2 on Sunday to show off their Irish pride ahead of the big parade.

While the St. Patrick’s Day Parade may be the city’s biggest event, it certainly isn’t the only way to celebrate the holiday in the city.
