Photos: Can You Get as Crazy St. Patrick's Weekend as These People?

In 2015, St. Patrick's Day falls on a Tuesday.

But that's actually good news, since it gives those of us who are Irish (or Irish once a year) the excuse to start partying several days in advance, starting with the annual St. Patrick's Day parade, getting underway at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 14.

Will this year's revelers be able to match the festiveness of those captured by Westword photographers last year?

Check out these highlights from two 2014  slideshows — Paddy's on Pearl 2014 and the Bikes and Beer Crawl — and then take the pics as a challenge.
