Reminders for Labor Day Weekend in Savannah

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Thousands of tourists and locals are spending Labor Day weekend in downtown Savannah.

Downtown Savannah is seeing a steady stream of visitors, and that means big dollars for businesses. They say it's nice to see such a boost in business after a lull at the beginning of August.

"It's been very busy here all weekend, we've been (busy) lots of crowds all weekend long, both days saturday and sunday." said Nissa Haines, Clerk at The Peanut Shop.

Haines says that many major events coninciding with the holiday weekend are also bringing out the crowds.

"I think a lot of it had to do with the River Street Association having the big football screens down at the other end of Rousakis Plaza, that's helped bring in a lot of people. Also, the Craft Brew Fest, we saw a lot of folks from that as well." said Haines.

Business owners agree Labor Day weekend is one of the busiest times of the year and that's why many of them do not plan on closing on the holiday.

However, there are some places that will be closed on Monday for the holiday.

All government offices, which includes city halls, county courthouses, the Department of Health and Welfare, the Department of Social and Health services, and post offices in the region will be closed.

The American Red Cross is reminding everyone to take precautions no matter where they may be for this holiday weekend.

For people heading out on the water they want to remind them to check the weather and water conditions beforehand and throughout the day. Always swim with a friend or where there is a lifeguard, and make sure to supervise children.

 

When it comes to grilling out, keep the grill away from the house, tree branches, or anything else that could catch fire. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions and keep children and pets away from the grill.
