The skies may have been a bit gray Saturday, but Five Points was nothing but green, as thousands of people turned out – and up – for St. Patrick’s Day. Partygoers decked out in green hats, beads and boots packed the streets and queued up to get into the bars to celebrate the Irish for the 32nd annual St. Pat’s in Five Points.
