As has been the tradition for many years, the all girls Catholic school, Hallahan, takes to the Swann Fountain in Logan Square in downtown Phila. to celebrate the last day of school. They call it fountain jumping and the beginning of a summer of fun. This is a re-submit for the monthly theme. Thanks to those who commented previously.
