SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Good morning revelers and welcome to Saint Patrick's Day 2008! Sarah Schuster here coming to you live from Smooth at 143 Bull Street.
As the Mass begins a few blocks away at the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist, parade-goers are already lining the streets, getting that perfect spot to see all Savannah's biggest parade has to offer.
Meanwhile here at Smooth, employees have been busy all morning, serving coffee, hot chocolate and other goodies to early morning customers.
"We anticipate this day all year and we are so thankful that it's a beautiful day in Savannah," said Susan Jaffie, owner of Smooth. "Today we have a lighter menu, hot dogs, corn dogs and our ever amazing pretzels."
As the festivities get going, I'll be coming to you all day with the latest from the parade route. And don't forget to check out our Mass and Parade Image Gallery. We'll be updating it with new pictures all day long.
