GRAND HAVEN, Mich. - It's been a West Michigan tradition since the 60s and now the Grand Haven musical fountain needs some serious upgrades.

"It's here through generous public support. It's here year after year we want to keep that going," Andy Cawthon, the chair of the Grand Haven musical fountain committee said.

On a good week officials say the Grand Have Musical fountain can bring in up to 6,000 people. Committee chair Andy Cawthon says the current sound system is 25-years-old and is in desperate need of an update.

"The amps are 10 years old they blow out," Cawthon added. "We are not a nice neighbor to the residences on Harbor."

The committee is hoping to change that looking to raise $150,000 to invest in the sound system this off-season.
