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.
