SCENE: World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade

The gold at the end of the rainbow is found in Hot Springs, Arkansas, along with celebrity Grand Marshal Bo Derek, green fireworks, Irish belly dancers, floats, Irish Order of Elvi (a group of Elvis look-alikes), marchers, Irish Wolfhounds, and let’s not forget the Pub-Crawl. Great fun for everyone!

The World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade is always held on March 17th on historic Bridge Street in downtown Hot Springs. Bridge Street became famous in the 1940’s when Ripley’s Believe It or Not designated it “The Shortest Street in the World.” Having earned this distinction, the Hot Springs Convention & Visitors Bureau deemed Bridge Street the most logical location for this novel parade.(source)
