Rain Delays Greening of the Fountain

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A popular Saint Patrick's Day event will take not place today as planned.

It's the Greening of the Fountain in Forsyth Park. The 2008 Grand Marshal, Dr. Frank Rossiter, Jr., was to turn the waters green for all to see. But inclement weather, including lots of rain expected to be locally heavy throughout the day, has prompted organizers to delay the event.

The parade committee tells WTOC the greening will take place Saturday at 10am.

They've been greening the fountain for more than 20 years.
