  • The First Ever Ninth Annual World's Shortest St. Patrick's Day Parade is Saturday in Hot Springs.

FIRST EVER NINTH ANNUAL WORLD'S SHORTEST ST. PATRICK'S DAY PARADE
11 a.m. Bridge Street. Free.

If you only go to one First Ever Ninth Annual World's Shortest St. Patrick's Day Parade this St. Patrick's Day season, make it this one. Sure, you can find green beer floats and marching bands and leprechauns at most of your ordinary St. Paddy's celebrations. But where else are you going to find concert performances by Pickled Beats and 38 Special, Irish Elvis impersonators, The Famous San Diego Chicken, a Blarney Stone kissing contest, Celebrity Grand Marshal Tim Matheson (who played Otter in "Animal House" and Dr. Brick Breeland on TV's "Hart of Dixie," among other roles) and lots more family fun, all on the shortest parade route known to man? Nowhere else, that's where.

The parade route will be measured for authenticity at 6:25 p.m. and the parade itself starts at 6:30 p.m., with 38 Special taking to the stage at 8 p.m.
