Irish eyes are smiling in Savannah. On March 17, more than 400,000 people flock to Savannah, Georgia, to join in the city's legendary St. Patrick's Day festivities. Since a flood of Irish immigrants started settling in Savannah during the early 1800s, the city has never looked at St. Patrick's Day the same way. With azaleas in bloom and kelly green as far as the eye can see, the famous parade--the nation's second largest, rivaling that of New York City--is the city's biggest party of the year. With more than 100 lively photographs, anecdotes, and facts, this beautiful book is a true celebration of St. Patrick's Day in the south.
From the Inside Flap:
Since the early 1800s, Savannah's Irish community has celebrated St. Patrick's Day with parties and a parade. In recent years, the festivities have attracted nearly a half-million visitors from around the country and the world, making the parade the second largest in the U.S.
The season begins prior to March 17, with traditional ceremonies at the downtown squares honoring Irish heroes, among others, but the parade is the centerpiece of St. Patrick's Day. Young and old alike rise early; don their green clothing, beads, and costumes; and trek downtown to the historic district to claim their spot on the parade route for the hours of fun to come. The parade is unique in that it includes not only bands, politicians, firefighters, and police officers--as you see in parades in New York, Boston, and Chicago--but also colorfully decorated floats, marching bands and other musical units, bagpipes from both this country and the old country, and countless Irish clans, organizations, and Irish dignitaries. All of this plays out against a breathtakingly beautiful backdrop of spring azaleas, moss-laden oaks lining the streets and squares, and the grand homes of Savannah's Historic District.
After the parade, the many businesses along River Street on the Savannah River host parties that last until the wee hours--the main attraction for many of the college students on spring break throughout the South. It is a day--and night--when everyone in Savannah is Irish.
Erin go bragh!
