While it may not necessarily feel like it outside, spring is right around the corner. You’ll find plenty of things to do, see and experience in and around Downtown Chicago this March.
Chicago Polar Plunge- March 3
North Avenue Beach, Lincoln Park
Prepare to dive into a late blast of winter at the annual Chicago Polar Plunge. The event kicks off in early March at North Avenue Beach in Lincoln Park. The extremely chilly event helps raise money for Special Olympics Chicago.
Chicago Beer Festival- March 9
The Field Museum
If you’d rather sip on a cold brew inside, head to The Field Museum during the Chicago Beer Festival. This event serves up samples from more than 70 different breweries.
Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade- March 16
Along Columbus Drive
Finally, head downtown for the St Patrick’s Day Parade in mid-March. Not only is it one of the nation’s largest parades to mark the holiday, but you can also check out the newly dyed “green” Chicago River while you’re out.
