St. Patty's day is almost upon us (we still can't believe how fast this year has gone), and we want you to be prepared! There are so many great ways to celebrate, even if you aren't Irish. Because the holiday falls on a weekday this year, the big parade falls on the Saturday prior (March 13th).
The Downtown Chicago St. Patrick's Day Parade begins at noon on Saturday, March 13th. But get there early to see the river died green. Or if you can't be there in person, check out this awesome stop motion video of the river changing its hue.
The South Side Irish St. Patrick's Day Fest will also take place on Saturday, March 13th with activities for guests all ages. Events will include food and live entertainment, as well as an array of contests. Please see the above link for more information on the festivities.
