A great show

We were there on a chilly night so there was no crowd. The kids loved the show and enjoyed all of the lights. It doesn't start until 10 because it has to be dark so it is a late... read more

Teens in our group enjoyed this multiple nights of our trip, especially with different music each time. It is truly amazing! Great activity for the whole family. What a treat in Grand Haven!

The musical fountain goes from memorial day to labor day nightly. It is a huge dancing fountain with movements set to music sitting on a large sand dune on the river The music changes nightly as you sit in the park watching the brightly colored water dance to music

This has got to be one of the wonders of the world. It is just amazing what is done with water and lights and music. They have upgraded the water pumps, now has LED lights and new better music coordinated to the water jets moving. A must see show. About 20 minutes long.

A popular local event for 50+ years. Nice music selection, but I think 15 minutes should be the limit. Just enjoy it and don't try to compare it to Disney spectacles.

We drove up on the longest day of the year from Saugatuck to see the fountain. Nice to grab an ice and sit on the seats provided or with your legs dangling from the side of the boardwalk. It is impressive but not amazing. My son was instantly disappointed. The colors and music are pretty but the fountain height is... More

If you haven't seen the fountain you should take time out to visit. Different songs played each night played to the dancing waters of the Musical Fountain. Starts close to dark and lasts about 45 minutes.

I remember when it was the "World's Largest". I'm sure it is no longer, but it's fun, and hokey, and part of GH. And even funny when it's sorta "modernized" subbing Katy Perry for Lawrence Welk.

Incredible sound and light show. Had no idea what to expect but were not dissapointing! They had a couple glitches through the show but were very apologetic.

The experience was very nice and seemed to be enjoyed by most. The movement was redundant,but the program was short. The very last song was classical...which showcases the technology best.
