Forsyth Park Fountain to turn Green on March 6th

The ornate Forsyth Park Fountain is of French design, however, each March 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.
