Georgia Day Parade 2012 is Fri. Feb. 10, downtown Savannah

You’re invited to watch the FREE annual Georgia Day Parade, which kicks off at 10:30 AM Fri. Feb. 10 and follows Bull Street from Forsyth Park to City Hall, in Historic Savannah.

Thousands of costumed local elementary school children march behind their hand-made banners in commemoration of Georgia’s founding in 1733. A colorful parade of students, musicians, local dignitaries, and costumed characters is preceded by a military color guard and marching band. Beginning at Forsyth Park and continuing around all five squares of Bull Street, the procession culminates with a program in front of City Hall, where the mayor and other officials bring greetings and present awards for the annual Banner Competition.
