Shamrock Celebration Thursday at Tanger Outlets Savannah

POOLER, GA (WTOC) - Folks getting into the spirit at Tanger Outlets in Pooler.

The greening of the fountain happening at 3 p.m. on Thursday, followed by a Clydesdales meet-and-greet.

The fountain turned green with the help of pediatric patients of the Dwaine & Cynthia Willett Children's Hospital.

"St. Patrick's Day is one of the largest festivals Savannah sees, so to be able to bring that in and give the shoppers something to come and celebrate and enjoy and to be able to combine that with a community event that benefits a hospital that does so much for our community, it just makes sense for us," said Tanger Outlets Savannah General Manager Laura Simmons.

Until 7 p.m. on Thursday, you can still meet the Clydesdales, stop by for a free face painting, listen to Irish bagpipers and watch Irish dancers.
