The Second City, is not second to New York City by any means when it comes to celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. If you’ve never visited the city during this time of year, it needs to be on your bucket list. That is, if you’re in the mood to party.

Chicago seems to be dipped in the colors of the Irish flag during the celebrations of St. Patrick’s Day. There are so many entertaining activities for families and individuals to take part in that one never gets bored. For the people of Chicago, the celebration continues from March to April, making it one of the biggest festivals in the city. The skyscrapers in the city also turn green in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day.

You can also choose to take a river boat tour and enjoy amazing performances that make for the perfect St. Patty’s Day celebrations in the entire country. And with so many pubs to choose from, you will always have plenty to do in Chicago.

The Chicago River, which runs through the heart of the city, is dyed a kelly green in honor of the holiday.

The town’s festive parade begins at noon on a Saturday, with bagpipers, horses, and high-stepping Irish dancers trotting all the way through Grant Park.

Local bars have plenty of all-day drink specials and some of them throw green eggs and ham into the package for those early-to-rise celebrators.
