SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The St. Patrick's Day Parade is less than two weeks away and people are already starting to make seating arrangement plans.
Instead of lugging a chair to and from the parade route, there is a more convenient way to enjoy the parade with a lot less work.
Since 2005, Kelly Tours has made bleacher seating available for purchase along the parade route. Bleacher seating is available in three locations this year: the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, Bay Street, and the Colonial Cemetery. Seating ranges in price from $30-$45 dollars. Even though your seat will be reserved, the seating opens at 6:30 a.m. the morning of the parade. With the crowd of people who come to watch the parade, people say this is a convenient and worry-free way to watch the parade.
"Especially with it being on a Saturday this year, the city is expecting twice as many as usual being on a Saturday," said Stephen Updegraff, the Vice President of Transportation at Kelly Tours. "So, the convenience factor, not having to get there as early, and also just making sure you have a seat. You can get up. You can leave. You don't have to worry about someone taking your stuff or being in your seat."
