Forsyth Park Fountain goes green for St. Patrick’s Day

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — The annual ‘Greening of the Fountain’ took place Friday, marking the official start of the St. Patrick’s Day celebration.

Each year the buckets of green dye are dumped into the Forsyth Park Fountain to start “turning Savannah green.” In addition, all fountains around the city got their share of green dye.

Storytellers say a leprechauns prank began this long-lasting tradition held each year on the Friday before St. Paddy’s Day.

The big celebration is just 8 days away, and the fun is just beginning! Follow along at
