Ole Hanson’s spirit graced the celebration of San Clemente’s 90th anniversary since incorporation on Feb. 24.
During San Clemente Day, people were able to taste chicken dinners, as tradition from the days when San Clemente was established and land was first sold to investors.
Mayor Tim Brown gave a speech along with City Council members Kathy Ward and Steve Swartz as they cut the cake on the city’s birthday.
Historic tours were given of Casa Romantica Cultural Center & Gardens, Las Palmas Elementary School and the Ole Hanson Beach Club.
San Clemente Day takes place on the last Saturday in February each year.
