The fountains seem to be everywhere in KC and some of them are truly magnificent. Many of the fountains are very ornate.

Loved watching the fountains with the symphony plating. We were here during the day. I am sure it is even more exciting at night.

We visited several - our favorite was the one located at The Plaza. we strolled around it several times during our visit and enjoyed watching families and children splashing in the water from our hotel window.

Driving around the city you get glimpses of all the wonderful fountains - most with children playing in them to beat the heat. Loved it!

I love fountains so I've always been awed by our great Kansas City fountains all over the city. When it's hot, they give you a "cooler" feeling. When our Royals are in town, they're a beautiful "blue" to support our team!

It answer to your question in regards to the fountains, it really depends on Mother Nature for the time line.I have seen in past years they were still flowing the night of the traditional Plaza Lighting for Christmas.

There is a map available on the fountains. Look at them and check which way the light is coming from so you know the best time to shoot. (Go to the Arabia museum. Fascinating look at the past)
