Chicago River Dyed Green

Green Chicago River on Saint Patricks Day 2009 560x215There are many parades and proud traditions that take place to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, but the dying of Chicago River is by far our favorite. Each year since 1962, the Chicago Journeymen Plumbers Union Local 130 dump containers of dye into the river from motorboats. The event takes places the morning of the St. Patrick’s Day parade, while thousands of onlookers cheer, and the effect is truly amazing. Sadly the greatest impact of the coloring only lasts about 12 hours, but the photographs last forever. We’ve collected a gallery of our favorites from the past several years, and suggest you put this event on your bucket list.
