THE WORK OF THE LEPRECHAUNS: Have you ever wanted to visit Chicago on Saint Patrick’s day? If you do, it will undoubtedly be one of the coolest yet most interesting sights ever! Every year on March 17, Chicago dyes their river green! In 1961, Stephen Bailey, a plumber noticed that his friend had bright green stains (associated with the flag color of Ireland) all over his white overalls. Then, the mayor of Chicago at the time discovered where the sewage in the water was originating from and used the green dye to help the source of the leaky pipes. In 1962, the local plumbers union decided to use that 100 pounds of dye to turn the river green for Saint Patrick’s Day! This year will be the 61 year anniversary of dying the river green!
