River runs green again in Chicago in lieu of St. Patrick’s Day

The city of Chicago decided to continue its St. Patrick’s Day tradition to dye the river green this year. While there wont be a St. Patrick’s Day parade, the river will run green. Authorities have also issued strict guidelines about gathering in bars to celebrate. The tradition to dye the river started in 1962 and continued every year until 2020, when it was paused due to the pandemic.

Nothing says "priorities" quite like dyeing a river green for a holiday while limiting people's ability to enjoy said holiday. Then again, it is Chicago we're talking about here..

If I were a professional writer, I would know that "in lieu of" means "instead of."

Looks like normal city river water.
