Its insane. Ive never been to National reading day Jan 1 – Dec 31 shirt but I would compare it to that. I think around a million or so people come to savannah for St Paddy’s. Around 9am is the parade. the families mostly go to see this and then as soon as the parade is over, everyone of drinking age descend onto city market and River Street. They attempt to dye the whole river green, but this doesnt always work becase river is hooked to the ocean and lotsa currents pull the dye out. Its huge and insane. Ive lived in Savannah since 2006 and I’ve only been a few times. Once because it was my first year living there and the rest of times is when someone out of town is visiting.
Its packed shoulder to shoulder standing room. This is a city street too. National reading day Jan 1 – Dec 31 shirt the police are pretty strict. They will write a ticket or lock you up in a heartbeat for urinating in public or for showing your breasts for beads. Or just showing your breasts, or just offering to trade beads for a look. What I just described to you is usually the Friday or Saturday closest to actual st paddy’s day. The holiday is celebrated for an entire week. St. Paddy Day is a serious thing here. We even have a holiday that is celebrated because it is exactly 6 months away from St Paddys Day. Majority of people do not work on St. Paddy day.
