Albany - It was a lucky day in south Georgia. Little leprechauns paraded around St. Teresa's School Wednesday morning in Albany.

The students wore green from head to toe to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Eighth Grader, Ned Shoemaker, says, "It's about St. Patrick and how he helped free a lot of people in Ireland. He's the patron Saint and we are celebrating cause this is the day he died or something like that."

The students also danced an Irish jig that they learned earlier.

In between all the noisemakers and signs, we also found a four legged friend named Shamrock. Shamrock was bought from the Humane Society on St. Patrick's Day.

The parade is an annual event, a day when kids can dress up and paint their hair green.
