St Patricks Day Parade and River Dyeing

March 16, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Our city is home to quite the St. Patrick’s Day celebration! The Chicago River goes green as 45 pounds of vegetable dye color the water between Columbus and Wacker drives. Then festivities continue after as revelers parade up Columbus Dr. with floats and flags to the sound of bagpipes.
