This weekend is another big holiday weekend celebrated in the Cap City, it's St. Patrick's day weekend, which means some serious partying happening in the 518. Now the official holiday is Tuesday March 17th however we must party the weekend before. Kicking off some St. Patrick's day weekend fun there will be the annual St. Patty's day parade happening this Saturday March 14th. The parade will begin at 2pm and will start on the corner of Quil and Central Ave in Albany. Roads will be closed during that time so traveling that route will be affected. Its a free event and open to the public. Parade goers could watch the parade anywhere alongside Central Ave and lower Central Ave.

Word on the street is that this is the largest parade in upstate NY, with family friendly activities afterwards. For more information the St. Patty's Day parade visit here.
