A sudsy mountain in the Tulalip fountain

 

Pranksters poured a prodigious amount of soap into the Tulalip Resort Casino entryway fountain overnight, causing bubbles to rise more than 10 feet and overflow onto a traffic roundabout.

This sort of thing happens about once a year, said Sam Askew, the hotel general manager. He presumes somebody was having some harmless pre-Halloween fun, and casino security is not trying to catch the soapers.

“It’s mostly cleaned up. We can appreciate a good practical joke as much as the next person,” he said late Saturday afternoon. On the other hand, it could create traffic hazards for drivers entering the roundabout, or even if they are distracted on nearby I-5, he said.  KING TV said traffic slowed on the freeway, but the state Department of Transportation reported no crashes. Tribal police said there have been no arrests.
