The Humane Society for Greater Savannah is pleased to host its 14th Annual Doggie Carnival, from noon to 5 p.m. at Forsyth Park at the Band Shell. It’s kid-friendly – bounce castles, water slide, cotton candy, popcorn, face painting and fun contests like the Pooch Smooch. It’s canine-friendly – so bring your best friend for Doggie Derby races, contests, and doggie ice cream. There’ll be plenty of great food; you can “ask the vet” and get “advice from the behavior specialist”, or commission a portrait by the talented SCAD sketchers. Plus, we’re introducing LIVE music from some of your favorite local artists and of course there’ll be raffle drawings for some fabulous prizes (at only $5 a ticket). Admission to the carnival is FREE! All proceeds benefit the Humane Society for Greater Savannah.

For Memorial Day Weekend in Savannah, get away to gentle climates and quiet, patriotic days and nights.
The city itself is a spectacular destination worth the trip and worth the anticipation to explore. Especially in Savannah’s beautiful springtime one does not need events. Yet, we have put together a few things to do in Savannah, Tybee Island, and Hilton Head Island that you may have not considered (below).
Recommendations from our innkeepers: embrace Savannah’s unique places and southern style.
Famous places include garden-park cemeteries -- Colonial Cemetery downtown, Bonaventure Cemetery on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, and Laurel Grove Cemetery where over 600 Confederates from the Battle of Gettysburg are buried.
For a long holiday weekend in Savannah, Romantic Inns of Savannah innkeepers will help you to celebrate Memorial Day – the day in late May that typically marks the start of the summer vacation season.
