Savannah St. Patrick's Festival Becomes New Tradition For Many

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA -

An endless array of green overtook River Street and City Market in Savannah on Saturday, day two of four in the city's St. Patrick's Day festival. 

As more and more people get out to partake in the green beer and street concerts, some say the festival is a tradition for them to return to each year. For others, it's a weekend they are taking in for the first time. 

This year marks Elliott Segall's first time dressing the part as leprechaun in his green garb. 

"It was actually passed down to me from my father, who was actually a great leprechaun," Segall jokes. 

"I'm Irish, hence the ginger-ness," Segall noted as he referenced his red beard. 

For the first time, Segall is experiencing the excitement Savannah has to offer over the St. Patrick's Day weekend. 

Others who donned the leprechaun costume included Keith Gibson, who visits Savannah from Florida.

"This is just something I threw together, pretty much everyone has stuff like this lying around, you know," Gibson joked.

As he asked others not to judge the outfit he sports in good fun, he noted he is in fact of Irish decent. 

"I grew up Irish, so St. Patrick's day has always been a big deal for me," Gibson says.

He says this year he hopes to make memories he will cherish in years to come.
