Chicago has no dearth of options when it comes to celebrating St. Patrick's Day. There's the South Side Irish Parade, the Northwest Side Irish Parade, the St. Patrick's Day Fest at the Irish American Heritage Center and, of course, the St. Paddy's festivities downtown, with the ritual dyeing of the Chicago River. But proving there's more to March than just kelly green plastic hats and Guinness, the Chiditarod shopping cart race kicks off the month, and signs of spring pop up at the Chicago Botanic Garden's Orchid Show, the Chicago Flower and Garden Show, and Macy's Flower Show.
