Greening of the Fountain to take place March 8th

One of Savannah’s most popular tourist attractions is the scenic and beautiful Forsyth Park Fountain, constructed in 1858.

Although of French design, each March, usually the week before March 17, it take on the “wearing o’ the green” in preparation for Savannah’s most celebrated event of the year, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

Some say it was the impish work of leprechauns that initiated the Greening of the Fountain. The story goes that in the mid 1980s an unknown group, enthusiastic about the approaching parade, attempted to dye the fountain water green.
