Closer to home, flashing lights were out last night as people hit local clubs and bars to celebrate St. Patty's Day.

Police were out in full force patrolling the roads, looking for drunk drivers.

Over the weekend Oregon State Police cited 23 people for driving under the influence. That's compared to 16 last year.

Three people also died in car crashes across Oregon this weekend. No word yet on whether alcohol was a factor.
