Big birthday celebration at Fountain Square

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - There's a big birthday celebration Friday night on Fountain Square, as the Tyler Davidson Fountain turns 140 years old.

The event will feature live music from the Naked Karate Girls and a huge Servatii's birthday cake.

When the Tyler Davidson Fountain was dedicated in 1871, Fountain Square was a wide esplanade down the middle of Fifth Street. Fountain Square was renovated in 2006 to become a catalyst for downtown rebirth.

The birthday party is from 5 to 9 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
