If you are in Grand Haven for the summer, you should check out the musical fountain. The fountain has recently been updated to include a helix in the show. The stadium seating is also being renovated and should be ready to seat excited onlookers of...More

Enjoy the new installed system, it’s like the bellagio fountains but with colors and absolutely synched to the music. Expect boats cruising around, nice people. Very nice place to spend an evening with family and friends.

Walked over this Friday evening to see "The GH Musical Fountain " music was much better than expected,lights seemed brighter and a little more in tune with the water and sound. If visiting the area it's worth seeing.

This was really cool! It only plays on friday and saturday nights, after dark obviously. The water shoots up into the air decently high to the beat of whatever song is playing with crazy lights lighting it up the whole time. It reminded me of...More

Probably would have been better if employees who had just worked the earlier dance weren't coming and going in front of us. Light and sound show was good.

We are traveling in the area for several days. We had so hoped to see the light show. The shows end on Labor Day. We were here 5 days lter! Seems many of the businesses and attraction close up here after Labor Day.Pretty disappointing.

The fountain is at the base of a tall dune on the north shore, that puts you either at the top of the dune, or on the wrong side to see it.I believe the top of the dune is inacessable. Sorry.

Fountain viewing is free .. you sit on the river bank on the opposite side of the Grand River. If you a lucky enough to get a seat on Snug Harbor's deck, you can see the fountain show from there.
