"Americans cherish freedom, but all too often we do not reflect how this came to be.
We honor those brave men and women in uniform who have given their lives in our defense
through our 238-year history as a nation. We should also remember those who risked all
to gain so many other freedoms that have become part of our Constitution. We also revere those
who fought for our right to speak openly, to assemble without fear, to end slavery, to have
a right to vote, for the right to personal privacy, and so many other privileges that we enjoy
today in the 'home of the free'."

the Patriots Day Parade was unavoidably cancelled on account of inclement weather. Given the hundreds of participants and volunteers and their months of hard work, the parade committee has arranged a warm and sunny day for the replacement parade on
Saturday, March 7, 2015!
A few changes of our program are needed, but in 2015 we are pleased to announce that most of our our parade honorees from 2014, including Grand Marshal Olympic Champion Janet Evans, will be joining us again on the morning of the first Saturday in March. The exception is that our junior Citizens of the Year for 2014 have graduated from Laguna Beach High School and moved on, so two of the most deserving 2015 seniors, Janie Crawford and Taylor Addis, have been selected. More about them further down.
The Honoree Brunch, usually held in early February, will not be held this year.
As parade day approaches, watch this site for the President's message, the annual essay winner, additions or modifications of the parade lineup or any other last minute changes.
49th Annual Laguna Beach Patriot's
will take place at 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 7st, 2015
