The Laguna Beach
Patriot's Day Parade
2018 parade theme:
“Waves of Freedom”
Our 2018 theme is "Waves of Freedom". Our community is located on the Pacific coast, so waves have always been a part of our lives. Indeed, the flag waving above the shore at Monument Point is an iconic image of Laguna Beach. That image reminds us how freedom has grown in our nation since its founding in 1776. Beginning with the Bill of Rights in our Constitution, we can trace our "waves of freedom" through its amendments such as the right to due process, the abolition of slavery, and the granting of voting rights to women and minorities. Waves ebb and flow and that is why we believe that the many freedoms in our republic should be treasured and never taken for granted.
