Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Tens of thousands of people enjoyed Columbia's annual St. Patrick's Day Celebration in Five Points.
The festival began with a race in the morning, then a parade, and finally the main event.
People enjoy the food, drink, and concerts that were provided all day long.
The event was capped off by a performance by Arrested Development.
Event organizers say they anticipated 40,000 people would attend the event, and they may have reached their goals thanks to the weather. Clear skies and the highest temperatures of the year made for ideal conditions for the festivities.
