This is a cute idea to draw people into this small town, however, I am not religious and most of the songs were geared toward the church goer...seems more like an activity for families with small children. The plus is that its free and when my friend and I went they had a band playing on the stage beforehand.

I enjoyed the musical fountain. The music that accompanies the water is nice, though changing it every other year would be nice. Not sure what would be involved in that, but it is nice to see the variety of colors the fountain changes into.

Liked the colors and fountain but would have preferred more classical music which would lend itself to the movement of the water (like Bellagio). Fun to see at least once while visiting Grand Haven.

Choreographed lighted fountain show on the Grand River. Streams of colored water dance to recorded music. The choreography and music is different each night. Show starts between 8:30 and 10:10 depending on the time of sunset. Show lasts 20 minutes. Show can be watched from stands at Waterfront Stadium or from anywhere along the riverwalk. Restrooms are available close to... More

Beautiful display of lights and water. The kids really enjoyed it, Definitely worth seeing, and enjoying a stroll on the boardwalk

Colorful fountain with motion set to music...a really great experience along the Grand Haven waterfront. Go early for dinner, tour the quaint downtown area, grab an ice cream cone nearby and the enjoy the show!

Beautiful and rhythmic huge water fountains set to music. Very colorful very relaxing. Only downfall, is aluminum bleachers, bring a cushion to sit on.

I and from Vegas and am used to the Bellagio fountain show. Wasn't sure about this one, but it was great. I loved the music and the colors and the entire show. It's on a hillside across the channel. The speakers were wonderful and we could here perfectly. What a blast!!!

The fountain keeps you entertained for 20 minutes, but the music wasn't really my style. Something to pass the time while you have some ice cream at night by the water
