Downtown Mesa is bringing the park to the people. An outdoors-inspired affair, Flash Park Friday hits the streets this week, with miniature parks taking over vacant parking spaces and sidewalks, promising a night of reprieve from an otherwise sweltering September.

The central event and activities will take place on Main Street between Robson and Center streets, while grassy oases will roll out in front of Main Street-area shops. Patrons can relax and sprawl out from 6 to 10 p.m. on the Third Friday of every month -- pets and kiddos in tow.
