Chicago boasts one of the largest and most significant St. Patrick’s Day parades in the world as it holds two parades: one on the North Side and another on the far South Side. The downtown parade attracts more visitors, while the South Side edition is more neighborhood-oriented, but both are well attended.
Additionally, the Chicago River has been dyed green for more than 50 years in honor of this holiday, and the tradition continues. Ultimately, when it comes to celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, the Windy City wows like no other with pub crawls, parties, and more.
