Parade of green to march downtown

According to the adage, everybody loves a parade.

That is a good thing, considering one will be winding its way through downtown Augusta today in celebration of St. Patrick's Day.

The parade begins at 2 p.m. at Eighth and Telfair streets and will include the Fort Gordon Color Guard, the 434th Army Band and the Westside, Josey and Academy of Richmond County high school bands.
