Should We Dye the Kalamazoo River Green for St. Patrick’s Day?
Kalamazoo has some outstanding St. Patrick's Day traditions like the parade down Burdick Street to the Knights of Columbus Hall and the fun in the pubs around town like O'Duffy's. But there's a particular St. Patrick's Day tradition not found in Kalamazoo - dyeing our river green.
Of course the most famous green river is in Chicago. Should Kalamazoo give the same treatment to our river?
Dyeing the Chicago River
The dye used in the Chicago river is a proprietary vegetable blend that is environmentally friendly.
