Chicago River dyed green

Posted: Updated:

The waterway in the Windy City was dyed green on Saturday to mark St. Patrick's Day weekend.

This isn't just a celebration, it's also a 50-year-old tradition when it comes to coloring the Chicago River.

A boat was spreading the dye, and some acrobatics were also thrown into the mix, as a person was hovering over the river as he wore water jets on his feet.
