Events in Savannah 3/17-3/20/2011

March 16, 2011

Events happening this weekend (3/17 – 3/20) include:

3/17 – 10:15 AM, 187th Annual St Patrick’s Day Parade, various locations – parade setup is located in front of the Catherine Ward House Inn.

Stepping off at 10:15 a.m. sharp, the three-hour parade consists of over 350 units, including several U.S. military divisions, many award-winning bands, and the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales. Some of the bands include the 282nd U.S. Army Band (Fort Jackson, S.C.), The Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps (Fort Myers, VA), U.S. Coast Guard Pipes and Drums (Norfolk, VA), and the Irish Air Corps Pipes and Drums (Dublin, Ireland). Setup for the parade is located just outside our front doors. Enjoy a hot cup of coffee while watching the bands warm up and rub elbows with city, state, and international dignitaries.

3/20 – 8:30 AM-12:30 PM, Spring Equinox Paddle, Rincon, GA.

Celebrate the official arrival of Spring by paddling through this ancient cypress swamp. After basic canoeing instruction, your WiSE naturalist will lead the way downstream past stately tupelo and ancient cypress. Their bright spring green foliage and dark trunks reflect perfectly in the mirror-dark water. We’ll be on the lookout for turtles, herons, and noisy kingfishers diving for their next meal. Maybe we’ll be lucky enough to spot a shy alligator sunning in the shallows. There’s beauty around every bend. Tour size: 4-16 people. Reservations Required. For more information, visit

3/4 – 18, “Crafting Activisim and Forging Fanfare,” Hall Street Gallery, 212 West Hall Street.

Crafting Activism and Forging Fanfare” is a solo exhibition by Gabriel Craig, metalsmith, writer, craft activist and Fall 2010 artist-in-residence in the SCAD metals and jewelry department. Highlighting the last five years of his production, this exhibition features recent video works that document Craig’s activist practice. Also on view is Forging Fanfare, a multimedia installation that evokes the kinship of music as a byproduct of metalsmithing and signifies new developments in the artist’s multidisciplinary work. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.


*** After all of the St. Patrick’s Day festivities, Savannah takes a few days off from major weekend events – probably to nurse the collective hang-over from the week ***
