Hampton Ave., is offering Water Wednesday during June and July.  Customers donating a case of water at the park on any Wednesday from June 4 through July 30 will receive one free admission with the purchase of a General Admission ticket for use the same day.  It is not valid with any other coupons or discounts. 

 

The Mesa Hydration Donation Campaign will be collecting water until Friday, September 12.  For more information, contact Mesa Community Revitalization Coordinator Rob Schweitzer at (480) 644-3024 or rob.schweitzer@mesaaz.gov or visit www.mesaaz.gov/H2Omesa.
