International Picnic Day

Posted on June 18, 2013 | 10:14am

One of the best ways to celebrate a sunny summer day is by having a picnic in the park!  Luckily, Costa Mesa has an abundance of summer sunshine and beautiful parks to make the City of the Arts an ideal place to celebrate International Picnic Day.
