Irish Tradition or Magical Leprechaun?

from Monika Thorpe

Every year when the exciting St. Patrick’s Day holiday comes around it makes me stop and think of the Chicago river here and how in the world they get it to turn such a bright and brilliant green?  For over 40 years the Chicago Journeyman Plumbers make this tradition happen with some secret dye that starts off orange.  Unless it really is leprechauns making this magic happen- could it be?  It does seem odd that no other city has been able to copy this. 

Here at Lakeside we wish all our wonderful customers the luck of the Irish and to have a Happy St. Patrick’s day!
