Thousands of spectators were treated to a special St. Patrick's Day parade on the day before the holiday as Hermosa Beach celebrated its 25th anniversary of the event.

A Budweiser Clydesdale full hitch trotted down Pier Avenue with Dalmations Auggie and Anita on board to the delight of green-clad children and adults who lined the street.

At parade's end, Disney flew a Dumbo, the Flying Elephant remote control aircraft over the beach to promote its March 29 premier of the movie.
