Fountain Hills – Arizona
Fountain Hills is in Maricopa County, Arizona. This town is well known for its fountain which can shoot water close to 600 feet in the air. People travel from all over to see this fountain every year. The population here in Fountain Hills as of 2016 was just under 25,000. In the ten yers between 1990 and 2000, Fountain Hills was the eighth fastest growing town/city in Arizona. According to the United States Census Bureau, Fountain Hills is approximately 20.36 square miles with a very small portion of that being water. This portion of Arizona was not incorporated until the year 1989 which is significantly later than many other cities in Arizona. The climate here in Fountain Hills is categorized as a “Hot Desert Climate.” This means that the summers tend to be very hot and dry and the winters are cool and dry for the most part. The hottest part of the year here goes from the very end of May until almost the end of September when the daily average high is around 95 degrees. The low for this period is just above 80 degrees hence the name “hot desert climate.” The coolest part of the year here goes from mid November until the very end of February when the daily average high is just about 71 degrees. The low for this time is a cool 42 degrees. Here in Fountain Hills you will rarely see the weather dip below 35 during the winter or go above 109 during the summer.
As previously mentioned, Fountain Hills is home to a fountain that is the fourth largest in the world. It was built back in 1970 by Robert P. McCulloch. This fountain sprays water for 15 minutes every hour between 9am and 9pm every day. This fountain was once the largest fountain in the world for more than a decade but has since fallen to number four on the list. This is something that you need to check out if you live here in Fountain Hills! Besides the fountain, Fountain Hills has three annual fairs. The first is a smaller, local art fair, the second is the “Fountain Hills Great Fair” which is a mixture of arts and a carnival. The third is the “Thunderbird Artists’ Fountain Hills Fine Art & Wine Affaire.” The wine and arts event is for people 21 and over and is a showcase of more than 125 local artists as well as winemakers. This event takes place right near the fountain which is a main focal point of this event. Besides these awesome events, ever year on St. Patrick’s Day the fountain is dyed green to help the town celebrate the holiday. This is something many people look forward to since seeing green water thrust almost 600 feet in the air is not something you see everyday!
