New Fountain Dedication

Friends of Fountain Square,

Fifteen years of hard work and patience have come to fruition, and we now have a new Fountain Square centerpiece.

We’re planning a dedication ceremony to mark the completion of our first phase of construction, and to officially turn on the fountain. The event will be a combined celebration with the organizers of the Shamrock Run, which will bring more than 2,000 runners and walkers through Fountain Square the following morning.

Here are the details:
