Cedar Rapids fountain foams

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- 1st Avenue drivers in Cedar Rapids couldn't help but turn their heads as they passed Red Robin Thursday morning.

Some even stopped to take a photo. Its not snow... somebody put soap in a fountain.  The pond filled up with soap and bubbles.  Tufts of bubbles even blew into the wind and across the street.

It's difficult to call it a mess... after all, it is very clean.

Kevin Bailey with Prairie Creek Nursery, says it will take an effort to clean up, but he still has a pretty good sense of humor.

Bailey says the soap shouldn't cause any damage to the pond. 
After a little defoamer, the pond was back to normal later in the day.
