New Orleans may be a great city with its Mardi Gras, but when it comes to festivals it has nothing on Savannah. Springtime in this part of Georgia is a serious festival season with all kinds of fun and excitement. We have just finished with the St. Patrick's Day parade (second largest in the country!), And Savannah is now getting into the heart of the spring time celebrations.

You will Love the Art

Many celebrations in Savannah center for music and art. The Spring Fling Art and Music Festival

celebrate the local art and performances of talent here in Southeast Georgia. The Savannah College of Art and Design sponsors the Broughton Street International Festival that has a global flavor to it (it is no surprise the school sponsors this; it has a branch in Hong Kong). As the fair month of May begins the Savannah Seafood Festival gets underway. If you are tired of hot dogs and fries, you're going to love the samplings from the sea that this festival brings onshore for your dinner plate.

Too many people think that Southeast Georgia only has down-home Southerners. As a matter of fact, there is a very large Celtic community in Savannah, and they are all very proud of their Irish and Scottish heritage. The Scottish Games Festival is held in May. You may not hear many banjos, but you will certainly thrill to the sound of bagpipes as the Scottish Highlands come to the low-level coasts of Georgia. Diversity is a common quality of Savannah and the Savannah Asian Festival celebrates the Far East. If you've never seen Filipino bamboo pole dancing, you will be amazed at this cultural export from the Philippines. Be sure to save some room on your calendar because the summer keeps the festivals rolling along.

Festivals Add to the Quality of Life

Savannah certainly does have its southern charm and the people are among the most courteous in the world. The festivals add to the quality of life in this beautiful part of America. They allow the community to come out and celebrate culture and delicious food at the same time. Savannah is certainly not some sleepy little town by the beach. Festival season starts early and stays late. There is always something for the family to enjoy.

You may live in a mansion or a ranch-style house, it doesn't matter. The quality of life in Savannah is so wonderful that you feel wealthy just by being a part of the community. Savannah houses are amazing places to raise families and welcome sanctuaries from a day of hard work. Anyone who is looking for a home in Savannah will be pleased to know that you have a choice of rural country, living on an island full of history, or close to the downtown area where you can walk to work. It is all here in the Hostess City and finding the right house just makes the picture complete.
