ECOmmunity at the LAB and the CAMP

Posted on April 8, 2013 | 10:02am | Travel Costa Mesa

ECOmmunity, an earth day celebration at the LAB and the CAMP, featured live music, eco-friendly vendors, raffles, prizes, sustainable living information and more.  As people strolled through the SoBeCa district and shops, they stopped to chat with the specialty vendors.  Some gathered information, others opted for face paint, while many just found a seat and enjoyed the warm spring sun.
