Savannah has a lot to offer for adults, children during St. Patrick's Day

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -
Get your green clothing, shamrocks and party attitude ready because the annual St. Patrick's Day celebration is just around the corner.

The kickoff to the celebration starts Friday March 13 at 12 p.m. with the traditional dyeing of the Forsyth Park water fountain green by the St. Patrick's Day Grand Marshal. On the following Saturday, March 14 until Tuesday, March 17, is when the celebration will officially begin.

River Street and City Market is where everything from live bands to food, beer and a good time are going to be presented mostly, so be ready to have a blast.

One of the big contenders who helps bring the St. Patrick celebration to life is the Savannah Waterfront Association. According to Executive Director Carrie Blith, there will be a lot of activities to enjoy during the four day festivity.

“On River Street we are going to have two stages of music that will be going all four days. Southern Eagle which is sponsored by Bud Light is going to have a national promotion called Up for Whatever, and they are going to have the House of Whatever on River Street where there will be activities. Our main stage is sponsored by Sweetwater and Heineken where there will be other activities as well. Plaza two, which is in front of the riverboat is sponsored by Corona, there will also be a ton of activities such as face painting and caricature drawing,” said Blith.

Since there is so much going on during the four-day celebration, what's the point of celebrating St. Patrick's Day without visiting a pub and grabbing a green beer?

“All day and night on both levels of the pub there will be traditional Irish bands performing on both levels during the whole weekend,” said Shayna Stancil of Kevin Berry's.

For families who want to enjoy an alcohol free Irish festival, head down to Emmet Park Saturday, March 14 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Tara Feis festival will have live Irish performers, various amounts of games and other fun entertainment for both adults and children.

Let this four day experience and celebration be a good time to look back on, but always remember to party safe, drink responsibly and catch a cab.
