The Clarence Buckingham Memorial Fountain, one of the largest in the world. Beginning at dusk, a spectacular light and music display accompanies the major display, beginning every hour on the hour for 20 minutes. Each evening, the final major display begins at 10:35 p.m.

The fountain is located in the heart of Chicago’s Loop, considered the “front door” of the city. You can’t miss this iconic Chicago landmark when wandering through the city’s incredible downtown. The water shows here are amazing, and a visit here is one of the best free things to do in Chicago!
