On Sunday, revelers lined Western Avenue between 103rd Street to 115th Street for the South Side Irish Parade. The parade was one of several Chicago events marking St. Patrick’s Day weekend, including the annual dyeing of the Chicago River and the Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday.

Mayoral candidate Lori Lightfoot marched in the parade, then received endorsements from U.S. Rep. Chuy Garcia and former mayoral candidate Jerry Joyce.

Chicago was recently named the best city in the country to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
