Chicago's St. Patty's Day celebration is on for this Saturday! Here is what you need to know!
The Chicago River will turn green this weekend as St. Patrick's Day celebrations take over the city, with the iconic parade returning for the first time in two years.
On Saturday, the city will host its annual St. Patrick's Day parade starting at 12:45 p.m. and will dye the Chicago River green in the morning to honor the holiday.
Looking to watch the river dyeing from the comfort of your own home? NBC 5 Chicago will stream the event online and in the app.
The parade was canceled the past two years due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. In 2021, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot dyed the river green in a surprise move the morning of what would have been the parade.
The 2022 Chicago St. Patrick's Day Parade theme will be "Honoring Chicagoland's Essential Workers," organizers announced.
Don't forget, join KISS-FM for the celebration too! We'll be giving away Billie Eilish tickets!
