This is Ashley in the WTOC 24-hour newsroom. Overnight rain didn't stop thousands from filling the streets for this year's 185th St. Patrick's Day parade celebration in Savannah.

People from as far away as Ireland traveled to southeast Georgia to be a part of the 2nd largest St. Patrick's Day celebration in the country.

WTOC is in downtown Savannah capturing all the fun. View the slideshow below to see some of the action behind the scenes.
