A very big surprise this morning--the board of directors of the Savannah Waterfront Association voted last night to cancel the Saint Patrick's Day festival on River Street. This came after concerns from Savannah City Council about where the money from the festival goes. The nonprofit association organizes and pays for the two-day festival, but the City of Savannah helps decide how the proceeds are distributed.
Thousands of people attend the gated waterfront filled with live bands and outdoor beer vendors. This does not mean that the party on river street won't happen, and the annual Saint Patrick's Day parade will still be held on March 17.
We are following this developing story and will have more on THE News throughout the day.
