I have the most vivid memories of going to the Pevely Fountain in the 1950's. It was always a special evening when my father would drive us there to have ice cream & watch the fountain. My favorite design was a basket weave. Considering this was before computer driven water shows, like the one at Bellagio in Las Vegas, there is still nothing like the beauty of the Oevely Fountain.
The water had colored lights playing on it in ever changing patterns. It was gorgeous, as was a similar fountain in Forest Park at the base of the hill leading up to the World's Fair Pavilion. Hundreds of people would gather there on summer nights and, before air conditioning, families would sleep in the park on hot nighs.
My dad would take us here after dinner on a hot and humid summer night in St. Lou. I remember it like it was yesterday, and I'm 75 years old!
