Big crowds came to downtown Nashville for the city's largest St. Patrick's Day celebration.

Music filled the air Saturday during the Music City Irish Festival.

People decked out in green filled Public Square Park for the free event. It also featured Irish dancing and food.

The festival started 15 years ago on Demonbreun Street, and organizers said it has continued to get bigger each year.

“It’s amazing. The feedback has been great,” said Quinn O’Sullivan, co-founder of the Music City Irish Festival. “More people come every year. It’s their way to experience Irish culture in a different way.”

The festival was moved to Public Square Park from Riverfront Park due to recent flooding.
