“They’re all homegrown events. This is something I really want to convey to people,” said Broker. “You know, we’ve heard about how Savannah has been innundated with events. This is a great thing for our cultural and economic growth, but we’ve also heard from our community that they want to see those home-grown events, events that give back to our community. Well this weekend that’s what’s happening.”
With all of the events happening this weekend, downtown Savannah will become very crowded and congested. The city released a list of street closures to take effect during those events.
