Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) March 01, 2013
People have been looking forward to St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago since New Years. This is one of the biggest parties of the year, and they come from all over to watch the river turn green and mingle in the Irish pubs. But that’s not all happening in Chicago this month. There are so many reasons to plan a trip to Chicago, for the concerts, the tours, the deals and the shows in Chicago. College kids are coming for Spring Break, party lovers will be here for St. Patrick’s Day and every family is in for a wonderful time this Easter.
ChicagoTraveler.com recommends some of the best things to do in Chicago this month, and where to stay to do it all.
St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago
The Chicago St. Patrick's Day Parade is held every year, and this year the parade starts at noon on Saturday, March 16th and runs down Columbus. Before the parade starts, find a spot along the Chicago River to watch them dye the river green at 10am. Thousands of people attend the event each year, so make sure to arrive early to get a good spot. Check the weather forecast before heading out on the town - of course wear green no matter what to prevent any unnecessary pinching, but be sure to have the necessary rain gear, sunglasses or perhaps beer goggles before leaving for the parade and full day of St. Patrick’s Day festivities ahead. A word to the wise, don't plan on driving to the parade, as parking is very limited. Those staying in a hotel nearby are at a great advantage, but the transportation in Chicago is extremely helpful on St. Patrick's Day too.
Concerts in Chicago March 2013
There are going to be tons of concerts in Chicago this March. Muse, Rihanna with A$AP Rocky and Pink will all be performing at the Chicago United Center this month. Head over to the House of Blues Chicago to see Imagine Dragons, Gaelic Storm on St. Patrick’s Day, Sound Tribe Sector 9 and R5 with Badfish throughout the month. Many other bands will be in Chicago like Minus the Bear at Metro Bar, Lynyrd Skynyrd at the Congress Theatre. Find Chicago concert tickets to these performances and more online.
If a concert isn’t really your scene, perhaps that money is better spent on different kinds of tickets. The Chicago Blackhawks and the Bulls have home games all month long, and some good ones at that. Find Chicago sports tickets up to the last minute online before these team’s seasons are over. For a little less rambunctious but just as entertaining evening, head to the theatre and check out one of the shows in Chicago this March like I Love Lucy Live on Stage, Rigoletto, The Book of Mormon, The Cat in the Hat and Million Dollar Quartet.
Easter in Chicago
Easter in Chicago is a beautiful time of year. The last day in March is usually a bit warmer than the winter months that preceded it and the crowds are starting to pick up without quite reaching the utter chaos of some weekends in the summer.

Every year, people come together for the egg hunt in Soldier Field, or the Doggie Easter Egg Hunt at Horner Park.
