Thousands turned out for the 20th Annual Balboa Island Parade on Sunday, which included an appearance by the fictional Bluth bananana stand seen on “Arrested Development.”

This year’s theme was“Balboa Island-Yesterday and Today.”

“An Island tradition filled with children on bikes, Island dogs, decorated golf carts and floats, vintage cars, keystone cops, drill teams, marching bands, local dignitaries and much more!” the Balboa Island website states.

The grand marshal this year was Dean Torrence of “Jan and Dean,” the surf rock band. Torrence performed with the Surf City Allstars at the event.

The event was sponsored by the Balboa Island Improvement Association.
