The countdown to Savannah's St. Patrick's Day Parade is on. There are only 16 days left before the big parade but the festivities are already under way. On Thursday, a reception for Grand Marshal Jimmy Ray was held at Benedictine Military.

"It is absolutely wonderful. My family has been involved with the parade since the 1800s, marching in it, my brothers, my dad, my grandfather, all members of the parade committee way back. I have been a member 40 years this year. It is exciting to be the man of the hour," said Ray.
