Buckingham Fountain Spring opening celebrates March of Dimes.

One of the signs of spring is when the Buckingham Fountain is turned on for the first time of the year. Today, as the spigots are turned on, the Chicago Park District will host children who’ve benefitted from programs sponsored by the March of Dimes. The organization works to combat premature birth and birth defects. We meet the children as they witness this annual event in Grant Park.
