SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - By now you had to have seen all the floats, all the bands and all the bagpipe players from this morning's Saint Patrick's Day Parade.

But what about all the parade watchers?

Green, green, and more green! Enough to make even the color green jealous.

"Green is one of the major colors of Ireland," said parade watcher Megan Murphy.

In the middle of all the costumes, colors and face paint you'll find Kelin Murphy and all of her sisters. She's a veteran of this parade and has been attending ever since she was a kid.

"I think St. Patrick's Day for the locals is about heritage and allowing everyone to come together and allowing visitors to come in and see how beautiful Savannah is," said Kelin Murphy.

And Murphy did her part by inviting some of her sorority sisters all the way from the University of Georgia to check out the parade.

"We're real excited because in Athens they talk about it all the time," said Lindsay Templeton.

Murphy says the St. Patrick's Day Parade allowed her not only to share in the moment with other parade goers but with her sorority sisters as well.

"My friends have heard from me just how fun this is from me and now this is their time down here to experience the excitement and the fun of St. Patrick's Day," said Murphy.

And boy did these young ladies have a good time.

"I've never seen anything like it," said Templeton.

"The floats every year get more and more elaborate," said Megan Murphy. "The crowd is ridiculous."

This was the group's weekend of their spring break trip and they enjoyed their time in the Hostess City.
