The viewing stand will be located in front of Buckingham Fountain.” Levin also suggests that if travelers wish to witness the famous “dyeing of the Chicago river,” the event begins at 10:00am on Saturday, March 16th, and the actual dyeing can be best viewed from the East side of the Michigan Avenue bridge, the West side of the Columbus Drive bridge or upper and lower Wacker Drive between Michigan Avenue and Columbus Drive.
