Fort Pulaski will begin Candle Lantern Tours on December 19 & 20. Pulaski commemorates the Confederate Nog party of 1861 each year during the holiday season. This Savannah tradition provides night tours of the fort by candlelight and oil lamps. In 1861, the tradition started when Confederate soldiers took a break from battle and decorated cannons with garland. They enjoyed fine delicacies from the city. Hot cider, cookies, music, caroling and night-time weapons firings will allow guests to re-live the festive occasion.
Also on December 20, The Tour de’ Lights Bike Parade will be held. It begins and ends at AJ’s Dockside. Award ceremony for the decorated bikes will be at 5pm. The following day the Floating Christmas Parade will be held.
