SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - The annual celebration of Georgia’s birthday in Savannah has been postponed for a week because of chilly, wet weather.

The Georgia Historical Society says the city’s Georgia Day parade, originally scheduled for Wednesday, will now be held on Feb. 19. The parade features mostly children from Savannah schools who march in a procession through the city’s downtown historic district.

The parade is normally held on Feb. 12, the date that Gen. James Edward Oglethorpe founded Georgia as a British colony in 1733.

Savannah isn’t forecast to be hit with snow and ice this week like much of the state. But Wednesday is expected to be rainy throughout the day, with temperatures in the low 40s.
