OMG! The World’s Shortest Parade is in Illinois
St. Patricks Day was this weekend and a lot of people celebrated by attending their town's local St Patty's Day parades. One Illinois town's parade is a little different than the rest though. The town is Chatham, IL. What's unique about this town's parade? It calls itself the world's shortest parade.
I cannot confirm or deny if this is ACTUALLY the shortest in the world. But I'd be willing to bet my money it's one of the shortest. The time?
2 MINUTES 30 SECONDS.
To watch it head here.
Here's what it's looked like in the past -

The organizers of the 89-foot long parade say the crowd has grown over the years. It started out probably about twenty-five to thirty people and here we are about 400 hundred people. The parade started at 2:30 p.m. and ended roughly at 2:32 p.m.
It was a St. Patrick's Day full of fun and festivities along with sounds from the Irish rockers Skibereen.
I've never personally been to a St Patty's Day parade before because I always think parades are too long. I guess I've finally found one that I would enjoy.
