Video: Savannah St. Patrick’s Day 2019 highlights

St. Patrick's Day

Savannah’s 195th St. Patrick’s Day was one for the books.

Check out all of the best moments of the day, starting with our Kim Gusby and Andrew Davis kicking off the parade.

St. Patrick’s Day is more than just parades and green outfits, it’s a religious holiday first. Many start off their day with mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist.

A lot of people experienced Savannah’s big party for the first time this year — including some of WSAV’s own!

It’s a tradition for cadets from Benedictine Military School to march in the parade… and maybe pick up some kisses along the way.

Some people walk in the parade or ride on a float. Others dance their way through!

Our Natalie Hendrix caught up with a lot of people during the parade, including this year’s Grand Marshal, Jerry Counihan.

What would live TV be without a “Hi mom!” here and there?

When it comes to St. Pat’s outfits, it’s green, green, and more green.

It’s a highlight for many, seeing the 3rd Infantry Division walking down the streets of Savannah each year.

Before and after the parade, the fun continued. The St. Patrick’s Day Festival downtown is a two-day event you won’t want to miss.
