After the Chicago River is dyed a murky shade of green, the city's big St. Patrick's Day celebration moves to Grant Park for a parade on Columbus Drive. You'll see bagpipes, drum corps, Irish dancers and politicians at this festive procession, which is among the largest events of its kind in the country. The parade marches north from Balbo Drive to Monroe Street, with a viewing stand situated in front of Buckingham Fountain.
