Fountain Day 2017 took place at The Concourse Fountain at St. John Avenue and Benton Boulevard. The ceremony was the official start of the fountain season in Kansas City. In addition to the ceremony, there were games, food trucks and musical entertainment.
Each year, the City of Fountains Foundation working with Kansas City Missouri Parks and Recreation, celebrate the event on the second Tuesday of April. Fountain Day 2018 is scheduled for April 10th. The location will be determined after the first of the year. The public is invited to attend the event as the Kansas City Parks and Recreation Department turns on the iconic fountains that make Kansas City the City of Fountains.
