Photos: St. Patrick’s Day 2023 in Central Arkansas

The last 10 days were packed with green and golden goodness for central Arkansas.

First up, on March 11, was the 22nd annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade through downtown Little Rock and Argenta hosted by the Irish Cultural Society of Arkansas. Irish wolfhounds, dancers, leprechauns and half the town showed up for the celebration followed by a block party.

Then on March 17 was the World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade. This Hot Springs tradition covering a brief 98 feet was kickstarted by actor Christopher McDonald, grand-marshaled by Justin Moore and wrapped up with a concert from The Molly Ringwalds.

Here’s a look back at this year’s St. Patrick’s Day festivities through the lens of our photographer Mark Wagner.
