After some delay due to technical adjustments, the P15.2 million Gaston Park Musical Fountain was finally switched on last night at a little past eight o’clock in the evening.
Despite project workers still making adjustments on several nozzles during the operation, there were lots of “oooohs” and “aaaahs” from among the crowd who patiently waited for the start of the fountain which was originally set to be switched on or tested again at around 7:00pm.
Photos below showed shots from the beginning where the musical fountain was switched on slowly phase by phase testing each group of nozzles.
Jets of water from the center fountain were the first to wow the crowd.
Slowly, lights from around the smaller circles started to light up.
You could still see workers adjusting some of the fountain parts.
The smaller fountains were then tested.
The crowd began to gather as news spread that the fountain was turned on.
Adjustments were still being made to fine tune its choreography with the background music.Nevertheless, the park is now a sight to behold at night for the local populace and tourists as well. Browse over more photos below.
