SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Thousands of people donned in green flooded the Gaslamp Quarter Saturday night for the 25th annual San Diego ShamROCK block party.

The event featured three stages of entertainment, food, jig-offs, and plenty of green beer.

"My all-time favorite. Because they close down the streets, it's like everybody is dressed up, it's such a good time, everyone is in such a great mood, on the same level of having a good time, it’s fun!” said Kelsey Silver, a San Diego resident.

The event went from 2 p.m. until midnight and organizers estimate there were up to 25,000 attendees.

Proceeds from the event go to the Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation.
