CHICAGO TURNED GREEN
THIS PAST WEEKEND

. . . as it does each year
    for the St. Patrick's Day parade.

   For the past 40 years, 
  the Chicago Journeymen Plumbers union 
 dye the Chicago River GREEN 
on parade weekend.

And partiers help celebrate this
very Irish holiday,
  whether they're Irish or not! 

The green dye is actually a secret formula,
thoroughly tested, and proven safe
for the environment.

(The green color disappears by Monday morning.)

  2. That first shot Amazing.... Good to know it's safe for the environment. I loved Chicago- good Jazz venues. It's been a while since I've been there. Did I tell you that I had once an exhibition there.

  13. My first thought was: is this safe for the environment?
    I had the answer as I read on!
    I have to say it is quite spectacular!
    This might help the green fish to become invisible! LOL!!
