The weather in March 2018 turned out to be perfect
for a parade and a good time was had by all.
Fortune has not smiled on the 2019 parade, however.
Marching units converge from all over southern California for our parade,
but upon hearing the forecast, some of them started canceling days ago.
Rain is forecast from 1am until at least 6pm
on Saturday in Laguna Beach.
Hence, no parade.
Sorry, folks. Next year will be better.

Patriot's Day Parade
2019 parade theme:
Our 2019 theme is “Everyday Heroes”. In arriving at this selection, one of our members suggested the motto of the United States Military Academy at West Point, which is “Duty, Honor, Country”. That brought to mind those individuals in our lives who have exemplified these traits. There are many around us. Often they act quietly without calling attention to themselves. They step up in difficult situations, know what has to be done, and then do the right thing. They come from all walks of life and all too frequently are unsung, receiving no notice or honors for their courageous deeds. These are our “Everyday Heroes” and we respectfully urge all to remember them and to be inspired by their example.

Laguna Beach to step off in the annual Laguna Beach Parade. For over fifty
years Orange County has enjoyed the parade and its entrants, the celebrities
and music, and the community spirit of this charming city by the sea.
in the popular event range from civic and veterans organizations to school
bands, floats, vintage automobiles, and light-hearted novelty groups.
The parade also honors citizens who have served the community and those
who have served the nation in time of war or national emergency.
