You've been pinched! Where is your GREEN??

What do we do in Chicago for
St. Patrick's Day??

We Turn Our River GREEN!

An annual tradition continued in Chicago to celebrate
St. Patrick's Day a little early.

Hundreds turned out to watch crews dye the Chicago River
a deep shade of green.
(Back in 1961, officials started using dye to turn the water green.)

The dye used by this year's crew was actually orange, but once it soaked
into the river it changed from orange to green. Cool, right?

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
{ put your green on! }
