This year’s St. Patrick’s Day festivities and Chicago River Dyeing will be on Saturday, March 12. Are you ready for this unique and great event?

You’ll also be able to attend the Irish parade at noon from the corner of Columbus Drive and Balbo, to Monroe Street.

Some people say the green-tinged waters connect Chicago to Ireland from the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers to the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean.

If you want to see the river completely green, try to arrive before 8 a.m. as the color only lasts about 5 hours. And if that’s not enough, here are some events for you to take into account and have a great time like a true Irish.
