The Laguna Beach
Patriot's Day Parade
2018 parade theme:
“Waves of Freedom”
Located on the Pacific coast, waves have always been an iconic feature of our community here in Laguna Beach. Even our school’s teams are named the Breakers! In another sense, that image reminds us how freedom has grown in our nation in the centuries 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 minorities and women as well as the removal of barriers to voting in our democracy. Waves ebb and flow, and that’s why we believe that the many freedoms in our republic must be treasured and never taken for granted.
the first Saturday of each March, a hundred marching units assemble in
Laguna Beach to step off in the annual Laguna Beach Parade. For over forty
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.
