SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — The Savannah Children’s Museum is inviting local families to celebrate the fun and whimsical world of Dr. Seuss during its ‘Seuss Fest’.

Attendees are encouraged to dress as their favorite Dr. Seuss character in honor of the author.

Watching the children participate in our fantastical programs using their imaginations is a highlight of the day!”
