St. Teresa's students march for St. Patrick's Day

ALBANY,  GA (WALB) –  The rain held off for students at St. Teresa's Catholic School as they marched in their annual St. Patrick's Day parade. 200 students and teachers dressed in green, some even spray painted their hair, and marched around the block in honor of St. Patrick.

A piper, leprechaun, and Albany police officers led the way. The kids had fun and got some exercise too! "We get to run around and play and we get to be in a parade and it's fun," said student Lucas Barajas.

"All week they have been told about St. Patrick's life and we do this because we are a Catholic school and St. Patrick is a saint of Ireland," said Grace Ledwitch.

The school is 65-years old and so is the tradition. Teachers said everyone looks forward to the green holiday, adults and kids alike.
