Description: Every St. Patrick’s Day, Chicago transforms from the Windy City into the Emerald City.

Turning the Chicago River green for St. Patrick's Day first began in 1962, one year after Savannah, GA tried to dye their river green but did not succeed. Mayor Richard J. Daley suggested that the city find a way to turn Lake Michigan green for St. Patrick’s Day.
