If you're looking for a little activity on this sunny SoCal Sunday, consider a virtual visit to the third annual L.A. Voices Arts and Culture Fest.

It's underway this weekend. Instead of crowds gathering at Grand Park in downtown Los Angeles, the festivities have moved onto the internet.

Grand Park director Julia Diamond says the festival celebrates L.A.'s cultural diversity. This year will be no different.

"There is drawing and poetry, and film and fashion. Its a walk-through of Los Angeles, but instead of doing it in the park, it's doing it on your home monitor."

A new presentation will take the virtual stage every hour. Performances include musician Balún, a Salvadoran cooking demonstration, and visual art from Ambar Navarro.

The L.A. Voices Arts and Culture Fest started this morning and ends at 6 p.m.
