TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Downtown Toledo will be packed this weekend with partiers celebrating St. Patrick's Day. Although the holiday falls on Monday, many bars and restaurants will hold events over the weekend.

The party started at 7 p.m. Friday at The Blarney Irish Pub, with tents blocking off Huron Street and live music.

"It's going to be a great weekend, regardless of the weather. We have the heated tent outside on Huron and it will be open Saturday 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. and Monday it will be open noon to 1 a.m.," said The Blarney Manager Bill Kline.

Kline says the pub has spent three months preparing for the event. Click here for a full schedule of events at The Blarney this weekend.
