Worlds Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade [Pictures]
I was there for the first ever Shortest St. Patrick's Day Parade in Hot Springs, Arkansas and back then, everybody wondered if this event would catch on. 12 years later, The Worlds Shortest St. Patrick's Day parade is still rolling.
Bridge Street in Hot Springs runs between two streets and is a whopping 98 feet in length.
Every year, over 30,000 people line the shortest street (according to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not).
Hot Springs in about an hour south of Little Rock and is known for its beauty and line of bath houses on Main Street, known as 'Bath House Row' that uses natural hot water from the world famous hot springs that flows freely from the ground.
It is also the childhood home of President Bill Clinton. He also went to school at Hot Springs High School, which by the way is now an apartment complex, and I lived there for a couple years.
Hot Springs is also a National Park. I don't think there is another city in the US that is a National Park.
This years fun includes Mark Martin's race car on display and music from the Swon Brothers.
