MACON, Ga. — Dublin was decked out in green on Saturday to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day!

The city began their festivities with the 39th annual Dublin Saint Patrick's day parade.

The parade began at 10:30 a.m., and finished around 12 p.m. It started on Jackson street and ran all the way to Bellevue Avenue.

After the parade was over, people could head over to First United Methodist Church for the Saint Patrick's Corned beef and cabbage dinner at noon.

They began cooking at 10 a.m. yesterday, and served several people on Saturday, with more than 100 people coming through to get a plate.
