Live Like a Local: ­­Erinn go Brach Ya’ll!

     Woohoo! Its that time of year again…this Saturday, March 12th, is the Tybee Island Irish Heritage Parade! We are even more excited about it because we had a blast a few weeks ago making festive hats with the residents of the Oceanside nursing home for their trolley ride. Tybee’s Irish Heritage Celebration is a fun, family friendly way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and, I don’t know about you, but I can hardly wait! The parade starts at City Hall and will proceed down Butler Avenue all the way to Tyrbisa Street. Get your green on and head out for a spot, because the fun starts at 3 pm and you don’t want to miss it!
     The St. Patrick’s Day fun doesn’t stop there either. Savannah’s famous St. Patrick’s Day Celebration gets started on the green day itself, Thursday March 17th, and runs through Saturday, March 19th! This will be the 187th celebration, and you have to be there! Visit the event website for a full schedule of events, but the festivities begin early at 8 am at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist with the St. Partick’s Day Mass, followed by the huge parade kick-off at 10:15 am. Savannah will even be getting in the Irish mood early with The Greening of the Fountain in Forsyth Park on March 11th, so it’s really a city wide affair!
     Don’t miss a minute of the fun…come celebrate with us, Tybee style! Cead Mile Failte…One Hundred Thousand Welcomes, because we can’t wait to celebrate the Irish in us all!
