Chicago River dyed blue for Cubs’ World Series victory
The Cubs have won the World Series, and now, the Chicago River is turning blue.
As the city prepared for a victory parade on Friday, the river turned ‘Cubbie Blue.’ Some Chicagoans cheered as the dye poured into the water while others actually got some dye on them.
Michael Sneed of the Chicago Tribune first reported during the series that the city planned on dying the river if its beloved ballclub on the north side of town was able to down the Indians in the Fall Classic. The river is traditionally dyed green for St. Patrick's Day.
According to DNAInfo, the same family that handles the color change every March dyed the river blue on Friday.
