Laguna Beach

Not long until the Laguna Beach Patriots Day Parade – will you be marching or watching?

The 54th Annual Laguna Beach Patriots Day Parade will march at 11 a.m., Saturday, March 7, starting at Laguna Beach High School, then proceed down Park Avenue, turn right on Glenneyre and right again on Forest Avenue, ending just past City Hall at Ocean Avenue.

Stu News is even more excited than usual this year, because our wonderful reporter Barbara Diamond will be the Grand Marshal.

Stu News hopes to see you there!

Because the 53rd parade was rained out, the same honorees will ride down the parade route: Grand Marshal Barbara Diamond, Honored Patriot Arnie Silverman, Citizen of the Year Sande St. John, Artist of the Year Roxanna Ward, and Athlete of the Year Jade Howson, as well as the 2020 Junior Citizens, Laila Cruz and Nathan Solomon, Class of 2020, chosen by the Laguna Beach High School staff. 

The lineup will include bands, equestrians, classic cars, and floats. Patriotic attire is suggested for attendees and participants.
