    Saint Patrick's Day means plenty of green for some local businesses and it's not because of leprechauns or four-leaf-clovers.

Celebrations for St. Patrick's Day are in full swing in Downtown Toledo.

The Blarney Irish Pub began its four days of festivities on Friday night. The party will continue all weekend, ending with a big celebration on Monday.

Robby Johnson wouldn't miss Shamrockin' The Blarney. "Every year, I'm always here."

Brian Spradlin says, "You know people get pretty crazy, but you can't let that get in the way of having fun."

A portion of the proceeds will benefit Local 92 firefighter's charities and Project I-am.
