This old musical fountain is one of a kind. My boyfriend and I arrived in Grand Haven shortly after 9:00 pm and were drawn to the sounds of music. We parked the vehicle and watched the colorful musical fountain playing an array of music. So...More

A unique experience with coordinated light show and musical production that lasts about half an hour and begins at dusk during the summer.

Great selection of music changes every night and is timed to the flows of water sprays and colors. Very romantic setting on some summer nights. Now, if the people coordinating the show will do an Outlander night, I would be ecstatic.

This is a pretty neat summer evening entertainment. It is really interesting after reading the history of the fountain on their Website.

Beautiful show with different songs and lights every night. Includes a mix of current hits, oldies, and instrumentals. Find some ice cream or dessert from the local nearby eateries, pop a squat in the amphitheater seating and enjoy the 20 minute show.

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.
