Arguably, the most popular regular event, free or otherwise, on The Las Vegas Strip, has to be the Fountains of Bellagio. Upping the ante of the Mirage Volcano, The Bellagio invested nearly $40 million in the fountains.
The water, music, and light extravaganza is presented as an entertaining art form, that is literally mesmerizing. From a sense of calmness to full exhilaration, this is the worlds greatest water show. A variety of music selections are featured such as Lee Greenwoods Im Proud To Be An American, Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On (the hit from the Titanic movie), Frank Sinatra’s Luck Be A Lady, Broadway, and Classical hits (Click on the picture to the right to see a video and a list of popular songs performed).
Not only does changing the music vary the performance, so does the desert wind which helps shape the computer controlled fountain spray. In the desert (you can’t remember your name – just checking your age
), water is always a concern and The Fountains of Bellagio have been an improvement in that supply by replacing the Dunes golf course which stood in this very spot and used ten times more water. The water in The Fountains of Bellagio is also recycled.
