SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - This weekend, enjoy a three-course meal, a parade by the beach, and much more!
Foodies, rejoice! Tons of local restaurants, including Husk in downtown Savannah, are participating in the inaugural Eat it and Like It Restaurant Weeks.
“Eat it and Like It’s Restaurant Weeks. 24 days of food. Everyone knows the concept of restaurant weeks. For dinner, which is the most popular meal of restaurant weeks, it’s usually a soup or salad, first course. They’ll offer you two choices, sometimes three choices. Then, you get your entree, and they’ll give you a couple of choices for that. Then, they offer you a dessert. Lunch is two courses for $20. Brunch is becoming a pretty significant thing here in Savannah. This isn’t about fancy. This is about everything. This is about good food - the same thing Eat it and Like It has been about," said Eat it and Like It’s Jesse Blanco.
Also this weekend, celebrate the grand reopening of Oatland Island Wildlife Center!
When a tornado back in July destroyed several of the animal exhibits, the center was forced to close for months. Now, the rebuilding is complete, and you’re invited to celebrate the grand reopening! Come out for a day of live music, animal exhibits, animal encounters, food trucks, crafts, and more. Admission is free from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

After that is the 6th Annual Tybee MLK Parade & Human Rights Celebration.
This year, Savannah Chatham County Schools Superintendent will serve as Grand Marshal parade honoring Dr. King’s legacy. The parade begins at 2 p.m.
After the parade, you can head downtown for a walking tour of some of the most beautiful and historic churches in Savannah.
“Saturday, Veritas Academy is hosting the first ever tour of churches. This a really exciting event because of how many historical churches are in Downtown Savannah. All of the money raised goes to Veritas. For those of you who don’t know, we are a classical, Covenantal, and Christian school," said Candace Brodmann of Veritas Academy.
