SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Friday marks the 29th year of the great Savannah tradition of greening the fountain at Forsyth Park.

Fourth-grader Thomas King is the winner of the 2013 WTOC coloring contest. Thomas went second to turn the fountain green right after Grand Marshal Jimmy Ray and got a little help with his watering can from Father Joe Smith. 

All of the parade committee members along with some of their family members added green dye to the fountain.  Even Thomas knows this event is all about community. He said he loves St. Patrick's Day because he gets to see his friends and everyone.

Most - if not all - of the fountains around the city are green now.
