Chicago's famous lakefront fountain has opened for the season.
The Chicago Park District announced Thursday that Buckingham Fountain is operating daily from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. through autumn.
The popular fountain is one of Chicago's most recognizable images with its towering stream of water and evening light shows.
The fountain shoots water from a center jet 150 feet into the air during a display every hour on the hour. Beginning at dusk, the fountain's major display is accompanied by a 20-minute light and music show. A final display begins at 10:35 p.m.
Buckingham Fountain was dedicated on Aug. 26, 1927, and has become a favorite backdrop for tourist snapshots, wedding photographers and filmmakers.
