Visiting the different fountains in Kansas City is a great way to spend a Saturday! Of course, they are much prettier when they are running, & the lights are on. They are also pretty spectacular in the winter, when the ice has built up!

Yes, KC is filled with fountains and other forms of public art. It is a pleasure to walk around and notice all the attractive public art, creating great public space to spot and enjoy the city.

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)
