John Gress For The Daily
Thousands gathered yesterday morning along the Chicago River ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Â including myself. Some in shamrock-shaped sunglasses and others dressed as leprechauns with fake orange beards. I however had on regular clothes, some teal socks and a fish eye lens up to my eye as I shot this 360-degree panorama of the festivities for The Daily.
Applause erupted as a motorboat sped in circles and a man on board dumped a secret dye in the water, quickly turning it a psychedelic green.
