Forget Boston and forget New York: both of these cities pale in comparison to Chicago when it comes to Irish pride.

St. Patrick’s Day may fall on a Tuesday this year, but Chicagoans celebrated on Saturday, turning the Chicago River green for the occasion. The coloring process took five hours and involved a mix of 40 pounds of powdered green vegetable dye being tipped overboard a boat. Thousands attend the riverside event each year, a tradition that dates back to 1962. This time-lapse video captures the process.

And don’t you worry about marine life. The vegetable-based dye isn’t harmful to anything living in the water!
