KC fountains 5It’s the second Tuesday in April, or “Fountain Day“, as they say here in Kansas City.  OK.  Confession.  I have lived in Kansas City since 1983… and I had no idea there was such a thing as “fountain day“.  Kansas City, lovingly nicknamed “The City of Fountains”, boasts more than 200 fountains registered here in the metro area.

KC fountains 6So here’s another little “factoid” for ya… Did you know that our beautiful city has more fountains than any other city in the world, except perhaps Rome?  Yep.  In the WORLD!!  Wow. Pretty impressive, huh?!

So with a happy heart, I bid a sweet goodnight to this wonderful city that I call “home”. Kansas City. “The (beautiful) City of Fountains…”
