"We're looking for a few thousand people in attendance tonight,” said Vice President of Marketing and Community Relations for Uptown Columbus, Becca Zajac. “It's all free and kid friendly. We're giving away lots of beads and hats and stuff so we hope everyone comes out and joins us. We want to celebrate, not only St. Patrick’s day but all these great merchants we have downtown.”
