Got into GH about 2:30 & spent the aft. in shops. Wanted to go to hotel before light show but decided there wouldnt be any parking avail later. I was right. Walked down to the waterfront and saw crowd starting to assemble.. Grabbed dinner nearby & then got down to the fountain area about 1-1/2 hrs before show. I saw the photos on the website apparently by professionals who paid the boaters to clear out. Sooooo, yes the continuous stream of HUGE boats back and forth in front of the light show and some that even stopped in front really ruins the show. I was surprised that this was even allowed to happen. Also the large anchor in the background looked odd as It was not lit up as it is shown in photos. The show itself was a little disappointing, with too much repetition and limited fountain displays. The music was not recognizable at all, except for the first half which were themes from "Frozen" and this was a double feature show lasting about 1 hr. It might be OK for the little ones. Yawn.

We had heard this was a must see. We were in the area and came over to watch the show around 830. There was some live entertainment playing which was nice. The entertainment ended at 9. The water show started at 10:10 by then we were ready to go. We watched about half of it and they had to pause the show for a large ship to come thru. Once it started again we stayed for another song then headed out.

We tried to see it but my kids couldn’t stay up that late. It said it started at dusk which I assumed was around 9:15pm. We arrived at 8 & walked around. Beautiful little town. Lots of ice cream options. Unfortunately, we had already had dessert so a second dessert wasn’t on option.

After an hour, I looked online & saw it wouldn’t start until 10:10pm each night. So we went home.

I’d definitely go back & time it better & save room for dessert.

Lovely, family friendly area. Watching the boats was fun. Just wish dusk had come earlier for us.

We took some good friends here since they had not visited before and it was our first time back in years. I was surprised at the changes which are very good. There is lots of room for people to sit and watch or to play.
The fountain and lights were great and the music was fun to listen to. Numerous boats made their way up and down the river.
The boardwalk in the area provides many places to eat, drink and to party. There were people everywhere laughing and enjoying themselves and the kids playing were having a great time.
Kudos to Grand Haven for making this a better place.

May daughter and I got ice cream and then sat on a bench along with the water and watched the show. It was a perfect night on vacation and I am so glad we got to see it. Will for sure go again when we go back!

So we went to the The Musical Fountain on a Saturday night and kick off for Coast Guard Week..... The theme for Saturday Night was the Greatest Showman. It was dancing water with lights and music.... All we kept hearing was the Coast guard week fireworks with the Musical Fountain is the best......

If your travels take you to Grand Haven, Michigan during the summer, make sure to visit the Musical Fountain. It is located at the west end of Washington Ave. in downtown Grand Haven. Each night during the summer, sundown beckons the lights and music that make the Musical Fountain a special tourist attraction. It's not Longwood Gardens, but it still is great fun. Nearby on Washington Ave. are restaurants and ice cream vendors. Downtown Grand Haven is very safe, and kid friendly, although the traffic can be heavy at times, although they travel slowly.

Vacationing in Grand Haven isn't complete without the Musical Fountain. If you are staying in town you can see/hear it from most of the condos near downtown, or they have lawn and stadium seating available as well.

The musical fountain is a one of a kind experience! It's known as "the dancing water" and that's what it is! Love it!
