2014 Georgia History Festival’s Georgia Day Parade
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. The Georgia History Festival is sponsored by Georgia Power, Delta, Jepson, Gulfstream, The Coca-Cola Company, The Atlanta Falcons, PGA Tour, and many more. Additional support from WSAV3.
Location: Bull Street from Forsyth Park to City Hall, Savannah, GA
Cost: Free and open to the public.
