Albany -- Hundreds of kids took to Albany streets wearing green Friday morning.   220 pre-K through 8th graders at St. Teresa's Catholic School took part in the school's annual St. Patrick's Day Parade.

They wore their best green outfits, green hair, shamrocks, and lucky beads. Some classes played musical instruments and whistles they made.

Dozens of parents and teachers accompanied them on their annual salute to St. Patrick,  the patron Saint of Ireland. For all the kids it was a fun time to get out of classrooms and celebrate. St. Teresa's 8th Grader Maddy Marthone said "we learn how to work together. We have fun. It's really awesome out here."  

 The more outlandish the outfit. the better. The school held St. Patrick's Day festivities a few days early because next week is the week before Easter, and St. Patrick's Day is never celebrated during Holy Week.
