Uncle Wilber Fountain Season Opening 

When: Sat., May 23, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. 2009
Price: Free

Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of the Uncle Wilber Fountain (Acacia Park, corner of Bijou and Tejon streets, unclewilber.org). Still, has anyone else noticed the name seems a little, ummm, unfortunate? I ask because last summer, when a sweaty old man pulled a melted chocolate bar out of his pocket and asked which swimsuit-clad child was mine, I wondered. Then there's this online description: "Uncle Wilber pops out every hour to have some fun." You know, just sayin'. Names aside, kick off your summer at today's Opening Day Ceremony from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. With free grilled food, ice cream and performances by the Incredible Circus MAT, it promises lots of family fun. Just keep an eye on Uncle Wilber. — Jill Thomas
