Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river…

17 Mar

Happy St. Pat’s Day!  Did you wear green today?  I know I did.

I like St. Patrick’s Day in all, but it’s not like it’s my favorite holiday.  I do like St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago.  I’ve been a couple of times and did you know they dye the river?  I didn’t either until 2005ish…  Anywhozits, pictures!


First step!  Police in action!
First pass through

What I think is amazing is the fact that they dye the river with tiny little Dixie cups and a baking sifter.


See the guys!? I like their white suits.

The dye is actually an orange color until it gets mixed in with the river.  What does that say about the river??


Old picture of Leanne and I.

Whoo! The river is green!

After they dying of the river, everybody walks over to the parade route to get good seats or really just standing.  The parade is your normal parade.  You know, marching bands and the like.  If your really lucky you may just see St. Patty’s Day Elvis’s, Elvi?


One of my favorite pictures!

The old dude’s hand in the picture is great.  He was super friendly and would move so I could take pictures (They actually had chairs in front of us).
