Today is September 12th, which means it’s Savannah Day! 912 Day is a day to show appreciation and celebrate all the Hostess city has to offer.
Last year, Mayor Van Johnson proclaimed the day because it represents our area code.
For the last 12 days the city asked people on social media to participate in the “Twelve days of 912″ challenge. Each day the city had a prompt and people posted pictures and videos to go along with it.
The prompts included tasks like posting a picture of a favorite Savannah meal, favorite scenery and sharing your Savannah story. The city had a lot of participation from locals, visitors and people who are from Savannah but now live all over the world.
In an interview with WTOC, Mayor Johnson said his favorite thing about Savannah is the people.
“We have 15 million people who come here and visit us, but the fact is they visit us because we are a great place to live. So, although we have our challenges like everybody else does the greatest part about it is that we work together to address those things. We spend so much time showing the world why we’re so great. This is a time to show love for the home team, the seaport, 912.”
If you want to participate on this 12th day of the challenge the prompt is to take a picture or a video of how you’re celebrating 912 Day. You can post it on Twitter or Facebook and tag the City of Savannah in it.
