The First Ever Annual World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade
Everybody is Irish in Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas on March 17th!
You want zany? We got some zany.
The lineup is set and the fans are sending their green leprechaun suits to the dry cleaners as planning proceeds for The First Ever Annual World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 17, 2017, on the World’s Shortest Street in beautiful Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas.
The world-famous Kissing of the Arkansas Blarney Stone Contest — with cash prizes! — will be on the day’s schedule, of course, and participants are getting new taps on the Irish jig shoes, putting the final touches on their floats and musical groups. We’ve had to limit the entry list to 40 units, or else the fun would go on forever.
Past participants have included the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders — of course — the (in)Famous Texas Tortilla Queens, the one and only Gary Busey, “Duck Dynasty’s” Mountain Man, and the San Diego Chicken.
In addition, the parade will feature such delights as a troupe of marching Irish Elvis impersonators; Irish belly dancers; Irish dogs; a fire truck as long as the parade route, and dozens of floats and marching units; loud music, and some Irish bagpipers
Is all this zany enough for you?
We thought so.
So get ready to join 30,013 fellow revelers in Hot Springs on March 17,
Fun and hilarity await you.
