Memorial Day Weekend on the River
May 27, 28, and 29, River Street was bustling with Savannah residents supporting their troops. Just in time for Memorial Day weekend, the Savannah Armed Forces Festival returned to the historic riverfront.
A bandstand, decorated with flags representing various military organizations, played music; people danced before it. Local vendors sold refreshments; local craftspeople sold their wares from an ocean of white tents. The US Coast Guard staged live rescue demonstrations on Friday, and two military bands performed at the bandstand.
All proceeds went to the Georgia National Guard.
