For three years the Cincinnati Museum Center has invited the community to participate as the water is turned on for the summer in its iconic fountain. Museum members and guests gathered Friday morning as the countdown began.
Sarah Bowman and her 2 1/2-year-old daughter Mimi of Fairfield waited patiently to the sounds of Jimmy Buffet music. Staff members passed out temporary tattoos to the children.
Amy Sellers of Finneytown has attended each of the last three fountain opening events with her family. She says her husband and twin sons love the trains so they spend a lot of time at the museum.
