St. Patrick's Day Celebrations in Savannah

Picture Gallery

By

The St. Patrick's Day celebration in Savannah is the city's largest annual celebration including the second largest St. Patrick's Day Parade and by many accounts the largest St. Patrick's Day street celebration in the United States. Likened by some to Mardi Gras gone Irish, the spirited St. Patrick's Day festivities in Savannah go on for several days, attracting roughly 400,000 Irish and honorary Irish visitors each year in addition to local revelers. The comparison to Mardi Gras ends when it comes to displays of public nudity, however, which in Savannah according to authorities can "get you arrested."

This photo gallery of past festivities offers a glimpse of some of the St. Patrick's Day fun in beautiful and lively Savannah. For more information about the events, visit: St. Patrick's Day Parade and Celebrations - Savannah
