☘️🏈 Emmitt Smith, the legendary Dallas Cowboys running back who is now a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, will serve as the celebrity grand marshal of the First Ever 21st Annual World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday, March 17, in downtown Hot Springs! ☘️
In his 15 seasons as a running back in the National Football League, Smith amassed many records that still stand today, including most career rushing yards and most career rushing touchdowns. Smith’s impressive resume includes three Super Bowl championship rings, his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2010, and, most recently in 2019, his selection to the NFL 100 All-Time Team (a prestigious list honoring the best players of the NFL's first 100 years).
“Wow,” said Visit Hot Springs CEO and parade founder Steve Arrison. “We are beyond thrilled that Emmitt Smith will be our grand marshal. He is still fondly remembered by millions of fans as one of the greatest ever to play the game. I know 98-foot Bridge Street won't be able to contain all the fans who want to see this legend in person on March 17. But we have Central Avenue and Malvern Avenue before and after the parade route where fans will find plenty of room to cheer this sports icon.”
