But no virus was going to stop these Morristown revelers, who included the Police Pipes and Drums of Morris County and past parade grand marshals at a shoulder-to-shoulder party complete with the customary green fire truck, food and libations, and Ireland’s Greatest Hits, performed with gusto by a pumped-up rock band.

“No parade is cancelled till we say it is!” joked a piper named Jason, from the Police Pipes and Drums.

“It’s unfortunate the parade was cancelled, but I get it,” said a young dad, who declined to give his name. He and his wife were preparing to take their 20-month-old daughter to the festivities behind a law office on Maple Avenue.
When asked if he was concerned about exposure to the coronavirus at the gathering, the dad smiled.
“It’s outside,” he said.
