Chicago held its larger celebrations with a duo of parades -- the South Side Irish and St. Patrick's Day-- and the dyeing of the Chicago River over the weekend. But there's still plenty of St. Patrick's Day spirit leftover for March 17th!
Touch of Chicago at White House
Even the city's most famous family got into the spirit, bringing a touch of Chicago to the White House. The fountains on the north and south lawns have been dyed green to mark Saint Patrick's Day. It's the first time the White House fountains have gone green.
Chicago's Shannon Rovers will perform at a White House party, which Mayor Daley will attend, on Tuesday.
