Justin Moore, a country music artist from Arkansas, named the Grand Marshal of the shortest St. Patrick’s Day parade



Hot Springs, Arkansas – Justin Moore, a country music artist and native of Arkansas, is the next famous person to appear in the 20th Annual World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

On Mar. 17, 2023, the procession is scheduled to return for the twentieth time.

Moore, who was born in Poyen, Arkansas, was named the parade’s celebrity grand marshal.

Multiple Billboard No. 1 albums, numerous Top 10 songs, and two Platinum-certified albums have all been highlights of Moore’s ten-year career.

Steve Arrison, CEO of Visit Hot Springs, emphasized how much the community of Hot Springs and its surroundings cares about the artist.

“All of us here in Hot Springs consider Justin almost a hometown boy since his hometown of Poyen is only a couple of miles down the road on Highway 270,” Arrison said. “He’ll be a great grand marshal as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of our huge little parade.”

Arrison also discussed Moore’s participation in the march.

“And while he won’t be performing as part of the celebration, he will be having a great time meeting some of his biggest fans who have come to see him in the parade,” Arrison added.

Moore is not the first famous person to take part in the celebrations, though.

Chris McDonald, who portrayed Shooter McGavin in the television series “Happy Gilmore,” said back in September that he will take part in the celebrations and fire the starting pistol to start the parade.

The Molly Ringwalds, an 80s-inspired band, will play after the parade on March 18, and on the same day, fans may dance to the legendary 70s band the Village People.
