Chicago's River of Green

March 17, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

 

A friend and I drove down to Chicago on Saturday to check out the St. Patrick’s Day festivities.   The city colors the river green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.   By the time we got there, it was already bright green.  A fun time for lots of lively colored kayaks and paddle boarders.

We took an architectural tour on the Chicago River.  Interesting info about the many Chicago buildings.  

 

 

Dwellings along the river ranged from high-priced townhomes/condos to some unfortunate folks that camp along the river in tents.   Can't imagine how cold that might have been this winter. 

 

 Lighting was perfect for some incredible skyline shots.  

 

As we walked toward the parade, the crowds got more dense and "active", so we gave up on the parade idea and walked to Greek Town for lunch.   

 We passed a number of interesting sites as we walked.
