It’s hard to believe that Savannah’s 189th Saint Patrick’s Day celebration is only 3 days away! Tomorrow, Tybee will kick off the festivities with the Irish Heritage Parade. The parade will begin at 3 p.m. at city hall.
For those of you that haven’t had a chance to experience the Savannah Saint Patrick’s Day parade on this lucky day, I will forewarn you that it is a riot! The parade is such a good time for all ages, but there is also history behind all of the fun.
Hibernians (natives of Ireland) marched the streets of Savannah in 1813 to honor the death of Saint Patrick of Ireland, giving way to Savannah’s very first Saint Patrick’s Day parade. As more Irish immigrants inhabited Savannah, the tradition became bigger and bigger until the parade became what it is today, the 2nd largest in the world!
Why not be a part of that, yourself? While most of Savannah is probably booked solid, we still have some amazing homes available with some great discounts 🙂 Just give us a call and join Oceanfront Cottage in celebrating on this awesome fun-filled day! Erin go Bragh!
