With most countries still under some form of coronavirus restrictions, Saint Patrick’s Day revelers around the world marked the feast day of the patron saint of Ireland in socially distanced and scaled-down celebrations.

In A Surprise Move, Chicago River Dyed Green Ahead Of St Patrick's Day


In New York, typically home to the world’s largest Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations, Mayor Bill De Blasio joined police officers and other city officials in a scaled-down parade.

Chicago residents were treated to the sight of the Chicago River dyed green, a surprise move by the city after suspending the Saint Patrick’s Day tradition last year over the spread of coronavirus.

In Ireland, still under a strict lockdown, some residents used Saint Patrick’s Day to hold an unauthorized demonstration in Dublin to protest against the coronavirus crackdowns.
