Thousands flocked to the Chicago River on Saturday to watch it turn bright green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.
The river went green at 9 a.m. between Columbus and Wacker drives. The dye lasts five hours.
Next, it was all about the St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Columbus Drive. Irish step dancers, marching bands and bagpipes made their way down the street in shades of green.
The parade started at noon in Grant Park at Columbus and Balbo drives and lasted about three hours.
