Second time in quite a few years I came here. It is about a 30 min show. Music, lights and water themed to entertain. Get a little bit of a history lesson about Dewey Hill. The boardwalk is nice with a few shops and ice cream stores. Grand Haven is a beautiful community.

I have been to Grand Haven many, many times but never stayed close enough that we could walk to the musical fountain display. It was very nice and being in the crowd was fun too. Thankfully it was a warm November evening.

As an adult couple without children, we did not find this super enjoyable. There were so many bugs around because they kept these massive spot lights on over the stands. We were eaten alive. They played songs that differed from the playlist that was online so we only knew one of the songs. It was a neat thing to see,... More

Near plenty of parking, shopping and ice cream shops galore. There is a grand stand for sitting. They put on a great show. Evey night is different music we went 2 nights in a row. It is pretty cool to watch. If it calls for it to be chilly be prepared with blankets because it really can get chilly sitting... More

This is a super fun family activity. We took the kids who were ages 10 & 11. They liked it a lot. It's a neat thing to do if you are in the area. There are many shops and a nice beach nearby. I think the kids got a little bored after about 20 minutes, but overall they liked it.

One of the coolest memories from my childhood is watching The Musical Fountain. It is a great experience and should not be missed!

Check their website to see what time the show is each night. You can watch from the stands(bleachers) on the waterfront. Fun show for all ages, plays current music choreographed to the lights and fountains.

Went twice-first time we left before seeing the show. It was running late & it was windy & cold. Second time we saw the show & it was wonderful. The water is synchronized to music.

No trip to Grand Haven is complete without an evening performance of the musical fountain. Every night is a different theme of music. All ages will enjoy the magic.

The musical fountain is a great way to cap your day at Grand Haven. Very entertaining! Now when I hear this one song, the fountain comes alive in my head.
