Fountain Square gearing up for busy Summer months

Fountain Square has experienced record crowds over the winter for its popular ice skating rink, and is coming off of a summer 2009 season that broke all kinds of crowd records including concert series and movie night attendance. Cincinnati’s primary public gathering space has help lead the transformation of the city’s urban core since it was renovated in 2005. With warmer temperatures and nice weather upon us, it is time to once again get ready for another Summer on the Square.
