On most nights on the Strip, you can find tourists criss-crossing along Las Vegas Boulevard, hurriedly scurrying in and out of bars, nightclubs and shopping plazas.
But every fifteen minutes, a familiar sight entices passersby to stop and linger for a little while.
The Fountains at Bellagio enchant audiences on a nightly basis with dancing waters choreographed to classical music, show tunes and pop favorites.
On a recent October evening, crowds began to gather at the first hint of fog on the eight-acre lake.
For just over three minutes, the Bellagio fountains danced to a classical melody to the awe and delight of the temporary audience.
Bellagio celebrates its 20th anniversary on Monday. The fountains debuted with the resort in 1998.
