SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The 190th annual Savannah St. Patrick's Day Parade will begin shortly at Gwinnett and Abercorn streets.

Parade chairman Kevin Halligan spoke to WTOC about how different this year's parade will be without Mike Manhatton.

"We will definitely be thinking about Mike. Mike's always been great, he's always a fixture on St. Patrick's Day, WTOC has always been great to us on St. Patrick's Day, and Mike was always there for us. We will definitely be thinking about him on Monday at mass and thinking about him during the parade as we pass in front of the cathedral, maybe look up there. We will definitely miss seeing his face as i know all of you will," Halligan said.

Hundreds attended the St. Patrick's Day Mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. Bishop Greg Hartmeyer made a tribute to WTOC's Mike Manhatton during the mass.
