The World's Smallest St. Patty's Day Parade

The Boll Weevil Monument isn't Enterprise's sole claim to fame. On a smaller scale (small being the operative word), the city hosts the world's smallest St. Patrick's Day Parade every year. It consists of one person, decked out in green and waving an Irish flag.

Kathy Sauer started the event in 1993 when she was president of the Enterprise Chamber of Commerce. It's a bit o' fun and a bit o' free publicity for the city, and the overhead is low as you can get, so the tradition continues. Rock on, party people!
