the outside, Laura Haskins can see
through that mask to knock down the

In the Windy City...the Chicago
River is going green.

Dozens of spectators turned out
to see a speed boat dump 40 pounds of
green food coloring into the water as
bagpipers played downtown Saturday.

The tradition dates back to 1962.

Only two Chicago families know
the secret ingredients.

The recipe has been passed down
from generation to generation.
