Did you know that every year Chicago dyes their river green? The process only lasts five hours but it is spectacular! The dyeing of the river can be seen in three locations, East side of the Michigan Avenue Bridge, West side of the Columbus Drive Bridge and along the banks of the Chicago Riverwalk between Michigan Avenue and Columbus Drive.

There is also a massive parade that day to add to the fun, with over 400,000 Irish loving folks show up dressed in green on colorful floats and trailing bagpipes. Rain or shine the parade goes on!
