Pittsburgh police made 71 arrests during the city's St. Patrick's Day celebrations over the weekend, which authorities said passed without any major incidents.

The parade Downtown on Saturday and celebrations around the city – which Public Safety Director Mike Huss said had become the second-largest St. Patrick's Day celebration in the country – did not result in any major incidents or problems. Of the 71 arrests, 21 were on the South Side, police said Sunday.

Huss and Acting Police Chief Regina McDonald thanked citizens and law enforcement, including partners with the Pennsylvania State Police, liquor control enforcement, Allegheny County Police, the Allegheny County Sheriff's Office and the South Side Chamber of Commerce.
