"Like nothing else of its kind, the colorful, ever changing beauty of the far famed Illuminated Cascades has proved an irresistible magnet to millions of enthralled visitors who have thrilled to its scenic brilliance etched against the pall of night."

At top are a series of 3 falls 4 feet high, next a single 10 foot fall, then a series of 3 foot falls, a single 8 foot fall and at bottom another series of 3 foot falls. All these falls are illuminated while between the 10 foot fall and the center fall are a series of 3 falls. Between the center falls and the 8 foot falls are a series of 2 falls two feet high."
