You'd think everyone in Chicago was Irish today. As I walked through the streets of the city every other person was wearing green. It's the day of the St. Patrick's Day parade, after all. There were some really elaborate things, like huge, wild green hats, green feather boas, bright green boots and even one guy with dyed green hair.
And of course they dye the river green, which is amazing. What other city does that? And it's not just green, it's GRRRREEEEEEEEEN. They pour in an orange powdery compound and look what it does. It wasn't easy to get a good picture cuz there's so much construction along the river but here are a couple that aren't bad.
