GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WZZM) -- An effort to give new life to a popular attraction on the lakeshore is underway. Grand Haven's Musical Fountain turns 50 years old next month.
Workers are replacing all of the fountain's old pipes and lights; the improvements will cost around $340,000.
"There are lots of different things to do with family and friends in Grand Haven. We hope it is one of the reasons people visit and come to Grand Haven it is a destination," said resident Ken Formsma.
A 50 day fundraising campaign is underway to pay for the repairs. That money is being collected at the Grand Haven Community Foundation. The fountain will be rededicated on May 26.
