It's OK, but it's not the Bellagio. The six-year olds didn't get bored. twenty-somethings were politely waiting for it to be over.

Pretty cool thing to see and it is FREE! Plenty of seating and a real treat. We went to see it two times and it was nice to know that they change up the music for each show.

This is a display of many water fountains backlit by colored lighting, appearing to dance to accompanying music. The program changes on a regular basis. Always free and always enjoyable - and something that is unusual enough that not many other places have such a display. The music can reverberate throughout the downtown, which means if you stay downtown, be... More

We were planning to see this the night of the 4th of July fireworks, but we happened to be out late a few days earlier and saw it was about to start. So we got comfy on the grass and waited. They announced when it was about to start, and shut the lights in most the area, but they did... More

Nice touch having modern music to draw the younger crowds. The night we were there they played several selections including "Let it Go" from the Disney movie “Frozen.” They programmed cool blues, purples, and white lights that gave the water a really neat texture.

We have lived in Grand Haven for a long time and this is not the fountain I remember as a kid! It's so much better! The music is relevant, Disney even, and the lights are super responsive and very colorful! If you haven't been down to watch it, you should go tonight. Oh, and it's free!!!

Watched it from the porch of Harbor House. First night was very foggy so hard to see any detail of the fountains and music not pleasant. Second day view was great and the music selections were more fitting.
