It's hard to believe that it's already March. Now is the perfect time to make plans to be at the World's Shortest St. Partick's Day Parade that will take place in Hot Springs on March 17, but the celebration will continue on to Saturday, March 18.

If you've never been to this truly special and fun event then this year is a great time to check it out. The parade this year will kick off with Parade Starter actor Christopher McDonald who starred in great movies like Happy Gilmore, Thelma and Louise, and The Perfect Storm just to name a few.

Just how short is the World's Shortest St. Patrick's Day Parade? 98 feet that's how short and they will officially measure it before the parade gets started. It all takes place on the tiny street of Bridge Street in downtown Hot Springs. Oh, don't worry there is a long lineup of floats to see.

If you're looking for a great day trip for the whole family may I recommend a fun outing at the Alligator Farm & Petting Zoo in Hot Springs, Arkansas? My wife has been visiting this fun attraction since she was a little girl, we manage to get around to seeing it every couple of years or so and for the most part, it stays pretty much the same, but it's always fun to pet a baby gater.
