This Saturday, April 4th is the second annual Fountain Day where Cincinnatians gather to ceremoniously turn the water back on at Fountain Square. The events will begin at 6pm and last for several hours with live music and an statement from Mayor Mallory.


The event is a great way to kick off the spring season and the return on warmer weather to the Queen City. Rozzi's Famous Fireworks will close out the programed portions of the evening shortly after 8pm.


The event is free and open to the public. Adult beverages and soft drinks will be available for purchase on the Square throughout the event. Parking is available in the Fountain Square Garage and Metro provides heavy service to the event via Government Square.

Welcome back Randy. Kudos to whomever produced this event, this will be fun; the bands scheduled are two of Cincy's best and everyone loves Rozzi's. Thanks for the info and schedule.

I'm always a day late and a dollar short! My boys would have loved this. This is what I get for not paying attention.

^Well it's still a new annual event so it's understandable. But be sure to remember that this will take place every year on the Saturday before Reds Opening Day. I can't believe this wasn't something official before...seems like a no-brainer.
