HONOLULU (KHNL) -- Thousands go green at a huge St. Patricks day block party in downtown Honolulu Monday night.

"Everyone who isn't even Irish wants to come down here and be a part of this culture," said Shannon Winpenny.

They gathered on Nuuanu Avenue in a sea of green as live music filled the air.

Last year, an estimated 3,000 people packed in to downtown for the party. We can see, it's no different this year.

Obviously lots of people were having a great time enjoying the Irish food and drink.

A warning to those having too much fun, Honolulu police are out to make sure everyone gets home safely.
