We have visited Grand Haven numerous times over the years and I never even knew this existed until the gentleman checking us in at our hotel suggested me see it. We watched the beautiful light show set behind the fountain while listening to Top 40's music including Katy Perry and One Republic. I am unsure as to if the music... More

The show was about 30 minutes. Beautiful light display synchronized to a different playlist of music each night. It wasn't crowded when we were there. Easy to access. Lots of bleacher seating and room for your own chairs. (Go see Barefoot Dave in the shops while you're there!)

Had no idea how large this attraction was! Absolutely beautiful. A must see. We saw it a couple of times and the music changed each night.

Had previously visited with my mom and aunts but hubby had never seen, so we included it in our road trip down along the Michigan coastline. Really enjoyed it! Spent the evening window shopping and having dinner in Grand Haven until dusk, then went and got a seat in the bleachers along the waterfront. Show began at dark, approximately 10:10,... More

Nice show,great music, all after dark .A well relaxing time in the park. Good seats right on waterfront, only wish boat traffic could be stopped for the 20/ 30 minutes it takes to view the show. Still had fun.

If you visit in the middle of the summer, it's a late show---the night we went the show didn't start until 10pm. But it is beautiful & a must see especially if you have kids. They change the music regularly (possible nightly) so even if you are visiting for a few days, you can catch a somewhat different show each... More

We walked the boardwalk earlier that day to the end of the pier and came back to Grand Haven in the evening about 10:00 for the musical fountain. We sat on the bleachers but there is also a grassy area to sit on if you bring a blanket or chair. The musical fountains are colored fountains set to music, about... More

The musical fountain is very unique, family friendly and free! As a visitor to the Grand Haven area, you really should stay for the Musical Fountain. Colored water choreographed to music - something you don't see every day. Bring a lawn chair or blanket for grass seating. Or there are plenty of bleachers directly across from the fountain. It plays... More

The laser light show and the fountain were coordinated with patriotic music for the Fourth of July. The show was immediately followed by the fireworks which were also outstanding! Great weekend in Grand Haven.
