We love a parade, and tomorrow Laguna Beach will have one. The 42nd annual Laguna Beach Patriots Day Parade will start marching, rolling and clip-clopping down Park Avenue promptly at 11 a.m. Saturday. It will be a feast of color, sound and good will as the town comes together to celebrate “Stars and Stripes Forever” and enjoy Laguna’s hometown flavor. Harry Lawrence is the Grand Marshal. Lawrence, at nearly 100 years old, has been a key player in Laguna Beach since just after World War II, in which he served as a naval intelligence officer — qualifying him to be honored for his military service to our country.

Laguna Beach was pretty wild in 1967. There was a diverse crowd with many lifestyles, spiritual and political beliefs. The Vietnam War was in full swing and Timothy Leary’s Brotherhood of Eternal Love was quietly making LSD in Laguna Canyon. Emily Ross thought it was time to come up with an event that would unify the community around one central theme — no matter what their beliefs or lifestyles, she believed Lagunans were all Americans. Ross founded the Patriots Day Parade, which is dedicated to the ideal of unity.
