Isko’s dancing fountain to rise soon in Manila

January 30, 2020

LOVERS may have a new ‘go-to’ place this coming Valentine’s Day without having to spend anything.

Manila Mayor Isko Moreno yesterday said that hopefully, a new, high-tech interactive musical dancing fountain will be opened to the public in time for the hearts’ day celebration.

Moreno said that based on the progress report given by city engineer Armand Andres on the project, it is almost finished.

The mayor said the new fountain is situated near the Bonifacio Shrine and has unique features.

Among others, the area of the said fountain will be ‘walkable’ during daytime as it is flat. At night, the water jets will be turned on, with the center jet shooting water as high as 20 feet or seven meters high.

Moreno added that the Philippine flag can be seen from the fountain via drone shot.

Currently, the Bonifacio Shrine has become a favorite instagrammable promenade and destination for tourists and locals alike with its new clean, well-lighted and comely image.

Before assumption into office, it was filled with filth that included garbage, human wastes and urine due to the presence of illegal vendors, drug users and vagrants.

Moreno had the place thoroughly cleared, cleaned up and restored as a clean, respectable shrine befitting of national hero Gat Andres Bonifacio.
