The shortest and smallest Paddy’s Day parade in the KC metro area is the one in Blue Springs (You could always beat them by going to the toilet in your house - unless you have the odd combination of a very big house and just the one toilet).
The distance of the parade route is believed to be 66 feet. There are other parades in the world claiming to be the shortest, but 66 feet is really a very short distance so shouldn’t take you too long to drive.
The 2016 Blue Springs St Patrick’s Day parade takes place actually on St Patrick’s Day, on Thursday 17th March that is, from 9am to 10am (Slow walkers).
Route (Don’t blink):
The parade begins at 1112 W Main Street at The Soda Fountain/Flower Shop and ends across the street at The Keg, which is at 1123 W Main Street.
And that all takes place as you might guess in downtown Blue Springs, Missouri.
