The popular FountainSide program returns to the Scioto Mile this week.

The weekly series, produced by the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department, offers a chance to frolic in the Bicentennial Park fountain and enjoy other free fun-including a frozen treat. FountainSide takes place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesdays.

Each week has a different theme. For June 8, it's Summer on the Scioto with the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium, the Turtle Lady, crafts, acting, bubbles and more. June 15 is Walk on the Wild Side, followed by Reptile Round-Up on June 22.
