A group of party-goers heads down Washington Street East to the bars after registering for the pub crawl. This year's event saw a record-high number of registrations. East End Main Street Executive Director Ric Cavender said he didn't have a concrete figure, but that at least 1,000 people signed up. Many more enjoyed the festivities without signing up.
The 3rd Annual East End St. Patrick's Day Pub Crawl, which helps promote East End businesses and raises lots of cash for East End Main Street, brought more than 1,000 people to the district Saturday. A popular spot along the Pub Crawl route was the Red Carpet Lounge back patio.

The festivities lasted well into the night. One popular attraction was a coin toss from the roof of Bluegrass Kitchen. Those on the ground tried to catch the coins, some of which came with a special prize.
Live music was available practically everywhere during the event. From left, Burr Beard, on hammer dulcimer, Maureen Cremeans, on violin and Mike Webb, on guitar, provide a show near the Kanawha County school board offices along Elizabeth Street.
