St. Patrick’s Day in Savannah

It’s St. Patrick’s Day in Savannah,

All the boys are on parade.

Sure the folks down here never miss a year

May their valor never fade.

It’s a wonderful city in Georgia

Where on March the seventeen

Every mother’s son and daughter

Will be wearing of the green.

Are you familiar with the song? Being based in Savannah since 1936, Roger Wood has seen its fair share of St. Patrick’s Days, but you know what- they never get old. St. Patrick’s Day in Savannah is a tradition all unto itself.

It’s not just about wearing green and watching the parade. It’s about the city of Savannah coming together as one to celebrate. Roger Wood used to have a float in the parade. We had a big smoker on the back filling the parade route with a mouthwatering aroma. The blue-grass band was on the front stirring up the excitement as we rounded the squares. Picnic tables lined the middle of the float filled with local families that wanted to witness the parade from a completely unique vantage point.

It wasn’t about the advertising. I mean sure you get your name in front of hundreds of thousands of people, but it was bigger than that. It was about being a part of the one day that the entire city of Savannah finds so incredibly special. We were honored to be a part of it.

St. Patrick’s Day is a wonderful tradition in Savannah. We like traditions around Roger Wood. 😉St. Patrick's Day
