THE WOODLANDS, TX (June 21, 2012) – In celebration of Fourth of July, the Fountains at Waterway Square will be synchronized to patriotic favorites for all to enjoy from July 2 through July 6, 2012.
The booming water jets and colorful light displays will dance to classics including "America the Beautiful," "Proud to be an American," "Star Spangled Banner," "Seventy Six Trombones," "Stars and Stripes Forever," and "God Bless America" weekdays every 15 minutes from noon to 2 p.m. and again from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.
"The patriotic songs at the Fountains at Waterway Square always prove to be a big hit and are one of the many great ways The Woodlands celebrates our nation's independence," says Nick Wolda, President of The Woodlands Convention & Visitors Bureau.
Waterway Square, located along Lake Robbins Drive between Waterway Avenue and Woodloch Forest Drive, features a 120-foot long, 10-foot high stone water wall where ribbons of water flow down seven terraced levels to a lower pond with 20 cascade jets. The water wall is flanked by stairs and stepped water cascades, all leading to an upper fountain containing 80 jets and three boomer jets that shoot water up to 75 feet high. The water jets, waterfalls and cascades are designed to create a variety of displays and effects ranging from the subtle flow of water over a stone wall to dancing columns of water, to intense bursts of water shooting several stories into the air. Waterway Square features seven speakers on the upper level and 12 speakers on the lower level.
