Plan now to attend Chicago’s Saint Patrick’s Day Parade and witness the dyeing of the Chicago River. This annual tradition of Chicago home owners and residents will take place on Saturday, March 12th. The dyeing of the river takes place between 10 and 11 a.m., and the crowds will be thick. The best place to watch the river change color is the intersection of Michigan Avenue and Wacker Drive.
The parade kicks off at about noon and the streets will be lined with families, business owners, and friends who live in Chicago. Parade Queen and Chicago local Sarah Gorecki will lead the parade. Dancers, dignitaries, boisterous music including bagpipes, fire trucks, floats, inflatables and more await you at this yearly event. The parade travels along Columbus Drive, beginning at Balbo and concluding at Monroe. Get there early and plan on public transportation, since parking spots are few and far between.
