That’s right! The First Ever 8th Annual World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade will be held in Hot Springs, Arkansas on March 17th. But don’t think that something so short isn’t worth your time. The Leprechauns will not take that lightly! The event is recognized by the Southeast Tourism Society as one of the top 20 events in the Southeast. In addition the Smithsonian has named #1 in the way of the most unusual celebrations of the holiday. Irish Central named it “the wackiest”. Now you know you want to be a part of it! Have a stay at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn and be there for this year’s round of recognition.

The festivities will last well into the evening with live music and a street dance starting at 7:30 to finish it off. Of course this will follow other events like the Blarney Stone Kissing contest at 4:30, and the parade itself lasts for and hour starting at 6:30. Get a good spot for viewing by making sure you arrive by 6:00 when the festivities kick off!

This year’s Grand Marshal will be none other than one John Corbett!

You know him from popular television shows such as Parenthood, Sex and the City and Northern Exposure. He will not only serve as Grand Marshal but also will provide the after-entertainment for the street dance by performing with his band!

American Idol – Lookout Point Connection Tonight!

January 27th, 2010 by Ray Rosset

Check out American Idol tonight to see Stephanie Daulong auditioning in Dallas.  How is Stephanie connected to Lookout Point, you ask?  She’s the daughter of the hardest working man in Hot Springs:  our gardener and friend, Pat Daulong.  Stephanie’s beautiful voice should take her a long way in the AI competition.

Although we’ve never heard Pat sing in public, he is an accomplished artist in his own right.  Besides his talent in the gardens, he’s also an impressionistic painter.

Best of luck, Stephanie!  We’ll cheer you on to Hollywood.

Hot Springs, Arkansas Named Top U.S. Travel Destination!

December 10th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

Hot Springs, Arkansas Bath House RowOur delightful and beloved town, Hot Springs, Arkansas was named one of the TOP FIVE travel destinations in the United States in 2010 by Trip Advisor!  According to Trip Advisor, the top consumer generated travel review site in the world, Hot Springs ranked #3 in their top travel destination for 2010, just behind Seward, Alaska and Hyannis, Massachusetts.   Completing the list of the Top Five travel destinations are Chinle, Arizona and Waimea, Hawaii.

Although we’re obviously partial, we think Hot Springs is one of the most beautiful and friendly places on the earth.  At the inn, waking up to the calming lake views and the low lying Ouachitas Mountains, hearing the birds sing, and smelling the freshly ground coffee brewing starts the day perfectly.  Yes, we’re partial. And we are so grateful to live in this fantastic town!  It’s a pleasure to see Trip Advisor recognize this jewel of a city.
