We will have to wait a little longer than usual to see the Peace Fountain.

The fountain required new parts, and the city says the new parts will not arrive until June, and that means the Peace Fountain will not be in the water until July.

Typically, the fountain is placed in the water in time for the Victoria Day long weekend. However, when the contractor hired to do the annual refurbishment of the pumps and motors this season began to work, the pumps were found to have significant wear due to sediment and debris. As a result, the manufacturer in Germany is building replacement parts.

The Peace Fountain is the only international floating fountain in the world, which can propel water 70 feet in the air and displays a light show at night.
