Fountain Hills, Arizona, is located on the extreme North Eastern edge of the greater Phoenix Metropolitan Area. Let's see how a Google Map link will look. Fountain Park is to the upper right in the below map.
To say that Fountain Hills, Arizona, is an exclusive town would be quite an understatement. I imagine the average income of its residents is quite significant.
I don't know which came first, Fountain Hills or THE Fountain. Probably they arrived at the same time, back in December of 1970, because it appears to be a well designed and very modern community.
And, out there in the small lake, is THE Fountain during its idle period awaiting the top-of-the-hour to erupt. It normally goes off at the-top-of-the-hour and erupts for fifteen minutes.
And ERUPT it certainly does. Please notice that the water is usually white in color as you see below.
Below are a few facts about THE Fountain.
Please don't strain your eyes trying to read the fine print in the below photo. Immediately following it you will find a close-up photo of the details of THE Fountain.
Every Saint Patrick's Day, once at 12 o'clock noon, and once at 5pm in the late afternoon, THE Fountain erupts for forty five minutes and spouts green water. It is quite a sight and draws a nice crowd.
Another look at its normal color.
In the below photo, it is a little difficult to see, but the fountain is just beginning to turn green.
I promised myself that I would NOT make the following disclaimer at the beginning of this Post.
IF you get tired, or even bored at looking at the below fifteen (15) photos, please realize that I snapped one hundred and twenty nine (129) photos during this photo shoot. So I am not posting anything even close to all of the photos that I snapped on Saint Patrick's Day.
Here we go.
SAINT PATRICK'S DAY 2021
It was one grand day.
