This plain fountain occupies an out-of-the-way corner of a pedestrian (figuratively speaking) square. No water in January, so no spitting surprise = not of much interest.

Still nice to see even in the cold and wet. Always fun to see people surprised by the boys antics, especially on a windy day!!

this fountain of the spitting boy was unusual from most fountains we have seen. at certain intervals, the boy spits water, so beware. everyone got a good laugh when one person just wasn't paying attention.

The statue of a naughty boy who spits water every two minutes. The puddle two yards from the statue gives a good clue where not to stand if you want to avoid getting wet! It is good fun and interesting.
