It is billed as a unique feature, which it is; however we find that once a season is enough. We bring out-of-town guests here just for the experience.

Nothing special just a little thing they do to attract tourist... If you are ever bored one night and have nothing better to do you might aswell wander down and see what happens but don't make it a priority.

If you've never been to this and you're in Grand haven, this is a must! Fun for all ages. Be sure to bring bug spray in the summer.

A cool thing to see when in Grand Haven. There is a big stage you can sit at and watch the show across the water. It is also visible from your bought if docked at the municipal marina.

This 50+ year old musical fountain plays at dusk in the summer. The music and lights are fun and there is normally a big crowd., The bleachers are a good spot to see the show, and a lot of people bring blankets and lay them out on the grass along the channel.

The Grand Haven Musical Fountain is a great attraction. It has a different program with music every night. The lights are coordinated to the music being played and the colors reflect off of the Grand River on a calm night. It only lasts about 15 minutes or 20 minutes but it worth watching.

20 minutes of music, water, and lights...every night in the summer. And if you go during 4th of July, there are fireworks too.

This is a fun experience perfect for a family outing. I remember loving this as a kid. Even as an adult now I enjoy watching the water moving to the beat of the music. Definitely something fun to go do on a summer evening.

Although the fountain was closed during our last visit in October, I've seen it before and it is enjoyable. Check dates and times.
