COLUMBIA (WACH) -- The popular Irish festival held each year in Columbia's Five Points is fast approaching but organizers say they don't have enough volunteers lined up.

Around 200 volunteers are still needed for the 29th annual St. Patrick's Day Festival that will be held in less than two weeks on March 19.

Staff with Columbia Opportunity Resource say they are looking for people to fill two shifts to pour beer and cover gates.

Those people must be at least 21-years-old and complete a short training session.

The different shifts run from 9:15 a.m. to 2.15 p.m. and 1:30 to 6:30 p.m.
