The YouTube page excellenthotels shows us what it's like at one of Portland's popular Irish bars on St. Patrick's Day.

The time-lapse video begins at 5:15am and there is already a line out the door at Ri-Ra on Commercial Street.

As the day rolls on, the line remains constant for pretty much the entire day while a group of onlookers for the St. Patrick's Day Parade gather right near the pub. You're able to tell when the parade ends as the line outside of Ri-Ra swells up again.
