2008 Saint Patrick's Day Parade is Underway

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - At about 10:15am, the 2008 Saint Patrick's Day parade kicked off. Police are driving along the parade route, clearing people from the road to make sure floats and marchers have a clear path.

Near the start of the parade at Gwinett and Abercorn, the banners started making their way down the street.

Here on Bull Street, it's a sea of green as more and more people are filling the streets. Beads, boas hats and balloons. As the parade makes its way down Abercorn, revelers here on Bull are sitting tight, waiting for the festivities to come around the corner from Bay.

In the meantime, it's food and fun. The smell of hotdogs is filling the air here at Smooth. Everyone is excited and ready for the parade to come by.
