Just in time for the Olympic visit, the Buckingham Fountain is being restored to life.The fountain underwent a $12-million winter renovation with the goal to make it look much as it did when it opened in 1927.

The project had long been scheduled to be completed later in April, but that date was moved up so the fountain would be in action for the International Olympic Committee visit, which began Thursday.
