SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Every weekend in Savannah is special, but this weekend, you can experience art, music, books and even Easter eggs.

You might have a tough time choosing which events to make it to.

The brand new Savannah Cultural Arts Center is finally open for everyone to enjoy! The celebrations begin on Friday and you’re invited. Taffanye Young, the City of Savannah’s Chief Community Services Officer told us the rundown of events for Friday and Saturday.

We’ll end the night at 7 p.m. with the dedication of the Ben Tucker Theater. He was an entrepreneur, he owned radio stations, he made memorable music he performed. He’s just been part of Savannah. Saturday will be a family day open to the entire community. We’ll have classes, dancing, people have a chance to get a little taste of what we’ll be offering throughout the year at the facility."
