It is noteworthy to tell passers-by to stop in at Elmer's Fountain during the cold months. The fountains continue to run, and ice builds up around them. The ice creates the most marvelous sculptures. Each are different from year to year. We always love our annual winter trip to Elmer's Fountain to see the latest addition to its artist's talents.

I stopped by and it appears one of the fountains fell over. Hope they get it fixed soon -- it is really missed!
