Annual Greening of the Forsyth Park Fountain

Hundreds turned out to Forsyth Park on Friday, March 11 to witness the annual Greening of the Fountain event hosted by the Savannah St. Patrick's Day Committee.  Conducted for more than thirty years, this popular celebration signals the official kick-off to the Saint Patrick's Day Festivities in Savannah, attracting locals and visitors from around the world to watch the green dye being poured into the historic fountain. Third-grader, Evan Burns, was the winner of WTOC's St. Patrick's Day coloring contest and won the grand prize of helping the committee members and their families turn the fountain green.
