Whoah!! The First Ever 15th Annual Worlds Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade was, without a doubt, the biggest little parade in its’ 15 year history.

We saw the grand opening of O’Kelley’s Pop Up Pub, Grand Funk Railroad, Morris Day & The Time, Joey Fatone, Napoleon Dynamite, a dozen Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders, Katie Sunshine, the Budweiser Clydesdales, Elvis impersonators, fire trucks, bag pipes, marching bands, news crews and tens of thousands of parade goers who turned Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas green for another year.
