Why Triangle Park fountains turned red

People in downtown Lexington were quite shocked when they saw a blood red liquid flowing through the fountains at Triangle Park today.

"I was shocked. I thought it was a prank. But now I know it's not, it's supposed to be red," said Jim Horacek.

"Our intention was to have it much more pink for our movie series for this Friday night.The movie is 'Pretty in Pink," said Renee Jackson with the Downtown Lexington Corporation.

The summer movie series will feature a film each Friday but the fountain will most likely only be colored for the opening night.

"We walked down here to see why it was red, but now we know," said Jo Almond.

The Downtown Lexington Corporation hopes to have the problem fixed in time for Friday's movie in the park.
