Every night at 10.10pm the show starts. it is memorizing if you just relax and watch the show..put down your smart phone and enjoy the moment.

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. The noise from the boats within the channel was a little distracting, but there is nothing... More

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.

This was cute. The music they picked was pretty corny but it was still a lot of fun. You sit on bleachers and watch the fountain from across the river. Wholesome free family activity. It's no Bellagio but I'd go again.

The Musical Fountain is a Landmark when visiting Grand Haven. Located on an island across from the stadium on the Grand Haven downtown pier, close your evening with colorful, musical, water fountain choreographed to music!

This is amazing and so much fun to bring people to who have never seen a fountain dance to music.....Love this in Grand Haven because it is close to go to.

Old fashioned fun, free, and has been a mainstay during the summer months since the early 1960s. You sit in old bleachers next to the channel and the water fountain show is across the water. Have been going for years, but the crowds seem smaller now and that is too bad because the lighting and sound is the best ever.... More
