SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - We're less than 24 hours away from the biggest Savannah event of the year. The Saint Patrick's Day parade draws in thousands of visitors and this year, the celebration is gearing up to be better than ever.

For those of you who couldn't be on the parade route in 2007, many were still able to join in on all the fun by logging on to We had a live stream of the Mass and parade and live images from resident photographer Tim Williams and up-to-the-minute blogs from me.

So be sure to tune in and log on. It all starts Friday at 8am. And for all your Irish Day information from festivities to rules to parking, visit the Saint Patrick's Day page.
