Hanging around firefighters has been delighting children(and moms) for a long time, but that's just one reason the Big Splash event is worth checking out. This is a free, celebration of the first water source to Fort Collins. Once an area can get clean water, it can grow and grow, this area has.

Big Splash is on June 15th from 10am to 3pm and takes place at the 1883 Fort Collins Water Works, 2005 N. Overland Trail.
