SAVANNAH, GA (February 8, 2018)— Downtown traffic will be affected for several hours Feb. 9th as Savannah Police close roads for the annual Georgia Day Parade, scheduled to begin at 10:45 a.m..

As part of the annual commemoration of the founding of the Georgia colony of February 12, 1733 by James Edward Oglethorpe, a tradition dating back to the earliest years of the colony’s founding, students, musicians, local dignitaries, and costumed historical figures will march through Savannah’s historic squares from Forsyth Park to City Hall along Bull Street. There will be a brief ceremony in front of City Hall once all of those participating in the parade have arrived.

Bay Street will be closed between Whitaker Street and Price Street from 1045am to 1245pm. Students will disperse with their schools from the intersection of Bay Street and Bull Street once the ceremony concludes.

Traffic flow should be returned to normal by 1pm.
