Buckingham Fountain, Chicago

Apparently this fountain, which is located in Grant Park, Chicago, is most famous for appearing in the opening credits of 'Married With Children'. However I can't confirm this as that would be an admission to having watched the programme. The accompanying video is taken during the day, so doesn't feature the light display which runs every evening between 9pm and 10pm. The video does, however, show the scale of the fountain which is truly impressive.

The fountain runs every 20 minutes from April 1 to November 1 from 10:00 to 22:00 with a light and water display from 21:00 to 22:00.
