World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade Today in Hot Springs

Zoie Clift
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! The
First Ever 7th Annual World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade takes places today on
world-famous Bridge Street (98-feet) in Hot Springs. Bo Derek is this year’s
Grand Marshall and is the first woman to hold the title for the event. If you head that way tonight, expect green fireworks,
Irish belly dancers, floats, the Irish Order of Elvi (a group of Elvis
look-alikes), marchers, Irish Wolfhounds, Ronnie Rodriguez as a Captain Jack
Sparrow Johnny Depp look-alike (tell him hello for me), and Buddy Jewell, who will perform a free concert
right after the parade. Everything kicks off at around 6 so it’s a great target to hit post work and school. oh, in true Irish spirit, there will also be a pub crawl downtown. Cheers!
