Battle of Costa Mesa
Each year, the American Civil War Society (ACWS), performs the Battle of Costa Mesa at Fairview Park. Approximately 150 Civil War buffs will reenact a battle.
This year, the Battle of Costa Mesa will take place on April 16 and April 17, 2011. The battles will take place at 1:30 and 3:30 pm on Saturday and 11:00 and 2:00 pm on Sunday.
