At the request of Festa Italiana organizers, the interactive water fountain next to the amphitheater will close on July 19 and remain shut down for the rest of the summer while the Front Street project proceeds, according to a city news release.

The fountain will be open, weather permitting, each day from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. through July 19. There are other community wading pools in the area. Information on those pools can be found at http://?

"The interactive fountain will be replaced," said Kelli Crawford-Smith, CDBG/?Entitlement Administrator for the city of Cuyahoga Falls. "The current one is at the end of its useful life and will be slightly shifted to accommodate the new road."
