Mountain Man,
a slow-talking repairman on the popular “Duck Dynasty” reality show, will be the “starter” of Hot Springs’ 11th Annual World’s Shortest St. Patrirck’s Day Parade on March 17.

“We thought it would be a nice touch to have a guy be the official starter who talks so slowly that the parade could be over by the time he tells the crowd his name,” Steve Arrison, CEO of Visit Hot Springs, said in a press release. “Mountain Man fits the bill perfectly.”

Jim Belushi will be the parade grand marshal.
