The Fair Park Esplanade fountain offers visitors exciting shows set to music every 30 minutes beginning at 8 a.m. and ending at 6 p.m. daily, weather permitting. For special events and the State Fair, these times may vary.
In all, 272 water jets are a part of the pool, spraying some 100 feet into the air at times. More than 170 white lights line the jets, pool and surrounding buildings, creating special effects to the musical numbers.
The Fair Park Esplanade, a 700-foot-long reflecting pool capped with three fountains, was built for the 1936 Texas Centennial.
Between Centennial Hall and the Automotive Building, just beyond the park's main entrance off Parry Avenue.
