St. Patrick's day in Columbia

Everyone seems to know that five points is the place to be on St. Patricks day. This often forgotten part of town (written off to the college party crowd) turns into absolute chaos on St. Paddy's day night. Think swarms of people in green or dressed like leprechauns scrambling for beer and free music. However, past the ruckus, there are quite  a few fun things to do down there on St. Paddy's day. Just plan on parking your car and being trapped there for a while or walking a hike to get down there. Here are the events located at the five points website:

Official Kick Off to St. Pat's/Battle of the Bands - Friday March 4, 2011. Located at the Five Points Fountain
Catch this next year, as it has already happened, but this is a kid friendly carnival to dye the fountain green and play games and listen to music from local bands.

Inagural St. Pat's Beauty Pageant - Saturday March 12, 2011. MLK Community Center
