Still to get your fill of outdoor ice skating? Better hurry up, as March is your last chance!


And when it comes to ice skating in Chicago, you can’t beat gliding through the ice rink at McCormick Tribune Plaza.


It’s right in front of the Chicago Bean, making it a great place for a Chicago Ice Skating Reel.

Ice skating at Maggie Daley Park

Another Chicago skating favorite: The Maggie Daley Park skating ribbon, against the backdrop of the magnificent Chicago skyline.


Art (especially Van Gogh) fans are in for an extra treat: ribbon art decor inspired by the legendary artist’s Starry Nights and Sunflowers paintings.

Watching the Chicago River go green!

Have you seen the Chicago River being dyed before?

It’s one of the traditions that define Chicago: the St. Patrick’s Day dyeing of the Chicago River!


Every year since 1962, the Chicago River is dyed Kelly Green (a shade of green that’s associated with St. Patrick’s Day) on the Saturday before St. Patrick’s Day.


After the muted greening last year (due to the lockdown), the greening is sure to be a major attraction this time!


Date: 10am on Saturday, March 12th.

Attending a St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Which St. Patrick's Day Parade(s) will you attend?

Given the importance of St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago history and culture, is it any surprise that we have as many as three parades?


  • The Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade

    • Saturday March 12th, from 12:15pm, on Columbus Drive between Balbo Drive and Monroe Drive.

  • The Northwest Side Irish Parade

    • Sunday March 13, from 12pm, from Neola Avenue to Northwest Highway.

  • And finally, the South Side Irish Parade

    • Sunday March 13, from 12pm, on Western Avenue between 103rd Street and 115th Street.


The Chicago Parade is our largest (in fact, maybe the largest in the country) St. Patrick’s Day parade, the Northwest Side Parade is a community event, while the South Side Parade started out as a family effort in the 1980’s.


Which one/ones are YOU planning to attend?

Getting Irish fever at Charm’d

Want that celebration of Irishness to hang on a wee bit longer?


Head over to Wrigleyville and ask for directions to Charm’d, the Irish themed popup bar experience (it’s at Deuce’s Major League Bar).


From wall-to-wall decor, to mischief by Shenanigan the Leprechaun to multiple bars (duh!), it doesn’t get any more Irish than this!


Check this out - their phone number is 866-UR-LUCKY!


Please note they do require prior booking, so make sure you get your on their website before you head out!


Dates: Till Sunday, March 27th.

A great opportunity to sample some delectable food and drink while listening and/or tapping a foot to the music. 


Dates: Every Friday and Saturday night from March 4th till March 26th.

Teaming up with the family to beat a Fox in a Box Chicago escape room

As far as things to do in Chicago with your family and friends is concerned, teaming up for an escape room challenge ranks right up there as one best choices for you!


After last year’s muted March (with the lockdown and all that), make this a most Memorable March with a trip to Chicago’s best escape room.


Take your pick from among our four escape games:

  • Leading a heist in The Bank,

  • Masterminding an escape from The Prison,

  • Stopping a catastrophic missile strike by breaking into The Bunker, and…

  • Evading traps and finding your way out of a sadistic criminal’s lair in The Zodiac.

And turn up with your family and friends at our Dearborn Galleria location!

Checking out The Office Experience

Aficionados of the hit sitcom The Office, unite!


The Office Experience, a popup attraction from Superfly X (who’ve also created The Friends Experience) marks its final month in Chicago this March.


If it didn’t get on your list of things to do in Chicago during Feb 2022, make sure you add it to your March schedule.


Spread out across 17 rooms on two floors, the popup features everything from set recreations to original props and costumes and even a merch shop.


A shoo-in for your Instagram feed.


Dates: Till Sunday, March 27th.

Mesmerizing yourself at Immersive Frida Kahlo

Apart from our institutions like the Art Institute and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago has a lot more to offer art lovers.


Like “Immersive Frida Kahlo”.


An exhibition of video projections of some of the celebrated artist’s (Frida Kahlo) most celebrated paintings, Immersive Frida Kahlo is a must-visit in Chicago this March.


If you have never heard of Frida Kahlo, what better way to experience her work than this?


Dates: All through March.

  • An after-event sale at which you can buy some of the flowers that you liked the best!
