Chicago river turns green for St. Patrick's Day

The river in Chicago turned green this morning in celebration of St. Patrick's Day.

The tradition has been a mainstay for 40 years and thousands turn out for the event.

The powder is actually orange, and then turns green when it reacts with the water.

After the river turns green, parades around the city step off.
