St. Patrick’s Day Crowds Pack River Street

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA -

The biggest party to hit Savannah is still going strong on River Street.

Partiers are not only decked out in green but they also made sure they had their $5 wristbands. The wristbands allow partiers to drink alcohol outside in the control zone.

"Drink as much as I can, as much as I want, and don't obviously get too crazy but just crazy enough," said partier Tiffany Gomez

AAA is offering its Tow to Go program to those who may not have a designated driver. A tow truck will take you and your car home free of charge. You do not have to be a AAA member to get this free service. You can call 855-286-9246.

Tow to Go expected to help around 200 people Saturday night get home safe. On Friday, the program helped 90 people.

"Very happy about that because you have to figure we saved someone at least a DUI, or a car crash, and we like to think we saved a life," said AAA Spokesman for Tow To Go, Joanna Newton.

The Governor's Office of Highway Safety is also urging visitors to download its Drive Sober app which provides a list of free and paid services in Savannah to get drivers home safe.
