If you're looking for something fun to do next week on St. Patrick's day, then get ready!  It's the "First Ever 17th Annual World's Shortest St. Patrick's Day Parade" in Hot Springs. I've gone the past couple of years and it is a blast! This year if you can take off a couple of days to enjoy the fun you'll be glad you did. 

This year the fun starts Monday, March 16 at 5PM in downtown Hot Springs with when the Entertainment District opens to a line up of live music starting with the Pink Piano Show. At 7PM Brian Martin performs on the Bridge Street Stage followed by a free concert by Blues Traveler starting at 8PM.
