Buckingham Fountain Almost Done

For many people who were around in the late 80's, Buckingham Fountain is known as the glorious fountain that erupts prior to Al Bundy sticking his hand down his pants during the intro of the infamous sitcom Married with Children.

To others, it's simply a Chicago icon that many people associate with Summer, Taste of Chicago, Lollapalooza and other lovely 'warm' weather things. This past year it went through it's largest renovation in its 81 year history and the Chicago Tribune has an update on the progress. Thankfully it looks like the phase to replace the loose pink gravel is almost the complete and ready for the warm weather.
