11 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 1, 2003.
WHAT IT MEANS:
The Patriots Day Parade Committee will hold the 37th annual parade
and will be permitted to post "no parking" signs on the south side of
the 300 block of Ocean Avenue, the parade route and assembly areas 24
hours in advance of the event. They were also authorized to use a
public address system. The theme will be "Freedom's Promise." The
parade will begin at Laguna Beach High School and continue down Park
Avenue, Glenneyre Street, Forest and Ocean Avenue. The committee will
also investigate the possibility of holding a community fair at the

council encouraged them to work with the Laguna Beach Chamber of
Commerce and Downtown merchants to hold the fair.
