St. Patrick’s Day in Savannah Hardcover – December 30, 2008 by Janice Shay and Polly Stramm


Irish eyes are smiling in Savannah. On March 17, more than 400,000 people flock to Savannah, Georgia, to join in the city’s legendary St. Patrick’s Day festivities. Since a flood of Irish immigrants started settling in Savannah during the early 1800s, the city has never looked at St. Patrick’s Day the same way. With azaleas in bloom and kelly green as far as the eye can see, the famous parade–the nation’s second largest, rivaling that of New York City–is the city’s biggest party of the year. With more than 100 lively photographs, anecdotes, and facts, this beautiful book is a true celebration of St. Patrick’s Day in the south.
