Buckingham fountain, one of the largest in the world, runs daily from early May through mid-October. Visitors can enjoy a major water display for 20 minutes every hour when the water goes 150 feet in the air. It is considered one of the finest ornamental fountains in America.
Pack a picnic, and enjoy the fountain show while eating in the park. It is a beautiful place for photos; people arrive from long distances to take pictures on their special days there.
The fountain is one of the most picturesque places in Chicago, with one side the Chicago skyline and the other lake Michigan.
Every hour you'll see 20 minutes of a spectacular water show. The show is fascinating at night with light effects.
