Enjoyable on a Warm Summer Night

This is a short and cute feature that is popular with families. They only perform 6 or 7 songs so it's not too long. Check times; ours started at 9:50pm.

It is neat to watch the first time but the crowed isn't worth seeing more than that. It doesn't really keep children's attention span for very long. And the show its self is 15 to 20 min. If your in the area it would be nice to watch but I wouldn't make a special trip for it.

Put your chair or blanket on the grass and enjoy a most unusual water and light show. Fun music, amazing colors and great for all ages. Right on the water.

Little kids might enjoy this, but my family thought the "show" was boring. Be sure to pack bug spray!

Stopped by after dinner on recently rainy Saturday night. Only caught the end, but would definitely make plans to watch another show next time I'm in town.

I didn't know what to expect when people were trying to describe the Musical Fountain to me, but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised! I experienced the Fountain as part of a fireworks show and it was spectacular. I highly recommend it.

Went with 3 year old and 7 year old. They both enjoyed it. We went on a Sunday night and we're able to park right in the parking lot down by the water. It lasted about 30 minutes. There are restrooms along the water and snacks.

On the Saturday of the annual Coast Guard Festival The Musical Fountain is accompanied by fireworks and lasers. A must see!
