People stretched along the nine-block parade route, which started at Chorro and Palm Streets and ended at Higuera and Nipomo.

Students, businesses, and non-profits decorated floats and performed for judges through the city.

“It’s a lot of fun, my family was screaming and waving so it’s a blast,” said Stella Tabuenca, a Laguna Middle School Student who marched with the San Luis Obispo High School band.

This was the 43rd year for the parade.
