From Memorial Day to Labor Day, the Centennial Fountain shoots an arc across the mouth of the Chicago River every hour from 10am to Midnight (except 3 and 4pm). After a wonderful evening on the river and Lake Michigan with Where I’ve Been, we returned at just the right time:

Centennial Fountain, Chicago River


The fountain was commemorated in 1989 to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Chicago and is located right where they reversed the flow of the river (click through the link and see another one of my pictures!) way back in 1900.
