A Green River Still Runs Through Chicago

Every year, St. Patrick’s Day is one of the most highly anticipated holidays in Chicago. Taverns fill up to their maximum capacity and the large floats that make their way from Balbo Drive and Monroe Street create a vibrant and high spirited celebration.

Unfortunately, this year there will be a pause on the parade. Although Chicago won’t be able to fully celebrate like years past, green river water will still rush through the heart of downtown.

So don’t put your St. Patrick’s Day gear away just yet! Lucky for you, Chicago taverns and pubs still want to celebrate the emerald green holiday in a safe and socially distanced way. Put on your warm green gear, including your mask, pack your hand sanitizer, review the latest COVID-19 guidelines and get your best pals together to celebrate on the Mile!

Celebrate Safely
