Memorial Day Weekend in Costa Mesa

Posted on May 21, 2013 | 1:20pm

Memorial Day is a federal holiday dedicated to remembering the men and women who died during their service in the United States Armed Forces.  The holiday was formerly known as Decoration Day and started after the Civil War to commemorate Union and Confederate soldiers.

While Memorial Day’s origins are somber, the long weekend has also come to represent something joyous – the unofficial beginning of summer.  Many people use the three day weekend to enjoy the warm weather at the beach, barbecues in the park or watching fireworks.  While all three of those activities are well worth it during the holiday weekend, there are some great events this Memorial Day Weekend in Costa Mesa that don’t require charcoal.
