The "old" fountain

TOMORROW NIGHT, June 23, the Passyunk Avenue Revitalization Corporation is throwing a party to celebrate the rededication and grand unveiling of their renovations to the fountain at East Passyunk Avenue and Tasker Street. Ceremony will begin at 7pm followed by a  big old block party at 8pm and run for about two hours. Sections of Passyunk Avenue will be blocked off to car traffic so for at least one night, our neighborhood will have its own “piazza.” (Take that Northern Liberties!)

More info about the “new” fountain from PARC:

PARC has invested more than $60,000 in the restoration of the fountain and improvements to the square. With the removal of the fencing and the addition of park benches and chess table, the fountain is reborn as a public gathering space and neighborhood amenity. The fountain will also be illuminated by state of the art LED lighting technology that will greatly enhance the square. The fountain itself has been fully restored with new tiles and marble.

The block party following the rededication ceremony will feature beverages and food provided by Paradiso and Izumi. Show your support for the neighborhood and the great work that PARC is doing to keep making it better.
