Thousands of gaudy green revelers are filling Savannah's downtown historic district for St. Patrick's Day -- the coastal city's biggest celebration of the year.

Overnight rains had dispersed by Tuesday morning before the city's mammoth parade kicked off, as masses of residents and tourists clad head-to-toe in green crammed the sidewalks and the oak- shaded squares.

St. Patrick's Day draws up to 400,000 people each year to Savannah, making the Irish holiday the city's biggest tourist attraction.

It's also a longstanding tradition among descendents of Irish immigrants here. Savannah's been celebrating St. Pat's since 1824.
