Friday, February 10, 2012, 10:30 a.m.
Bull Street from Forsyth Park to City Hall, 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. Free and open to the public.
The Library and Archives will be closed this day for Georgia History Festival events.
