Culbertson Fountain overflows with bubbles

The Culbertson Fountain on the plaza in downtown Paris was overflowing with bubbles early this morning.

A large amount of a soap substance was put into the fountain, producing massive amounts of bubbles during the thunderstorms we experienced in the early morning hours.

The bubbles only continued to produce as spot showers rolled in, blowing across the street and onto the plaza businesses with every gust of wind. The City of Paris drained the bubbles and cleaned the area, restoring the fountain’s normal appearance.
