UMass warns students ahead of Blarney Blowout

AMHERST, MA (WSHM) -

UMass students have been warned - party too hard at this year's Blarney Blowout and you'll face tough consequences.

University officials sent an email out to students before this weekend's festivities.

Blarney Blowout takes place on Saturday in celebration of St. Patrick's Day at downtown Amherst bars. It is not a university sponsored event. 

The party weekend has been known to cause problems in town in the past.

Last year extra police and ambulances had to be called in to break it up.

Students were warned that bad behavior will result in "serious consequences".
