Gray clouds gave way to the sun just long enough for the 56th Laguna Beach Patriots Day Parade to take place in downtown Laguna Beach last Saturday, March 4. Seventy-five parade entries, ranging from the Girls & Boys Club to the Laguna Beach Garden Club, took part in the local tradition. Since 1967, the parade promotes patriotism and showcases all things Laguna. This year’s theme “Volunteer Heroes” honored the people who give their time to help shape Laguna into what it is today.
