Expect Large Crowds In Uptown Saturday!

CHARLOTTE, NC. —  Expect large crowds in Uptown Saturday. Not only do we have the ACC Championship, but St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl!

Officer Jonathan Frisk says CMPD is ready for the crowds.

“They’ll be a lot of officers out there on duty, and some off duty. So they’ll be a large police presence to try and keep people safe as possible,” says Officer Frisk.

The 19th annual St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl draws huge crowds, with many Uptown bars participating. Fans in Charlotte for the ACC say they’ll embrace the festivities.

“We look forward to it. I love St. Patrick’s Day. We just don’t ever get to celebrate it much. It is  kind of cool to see the green beer, and just have a good time,” Arlene Layden.

“Anytime that we get a lot of people coming into town it’s always good for the economy. So yeah, the more the merrier, why not,” says JJ Zavala.

The ACC Championship is set to start at 8:30 pm. The pub crawl starts at noon and goes until around 10 at night.
