After the Chicago river is dyed a murky shade of green, the city's big, noisy, fun-filled homage to the Irish makes its way through Grant Park on Columbus Drive, with plenty of bagpipes, drum corps, Irish dancers and other merrymakers in tow. Since St. Patrick's Day falls on a Saturday this year, the parade will actually be on the holiday itself. Find the viewing stand filled with local dignitaries in front of Buckingham Fountain.
