On Independence Day, both tourists and locals go to casinos, which normally arrange a variety of entertainment options for them. As a result, Southern California’s casinos are planning to hold many entertainment events to commemorate the special month. Some will even begin before the national holiday.
Entertainment events at Southern California casinos
As the Fourth of July isn’t complete without a fireworks show, most Southern California casinos join the fun. Harrah’s Resort Southern California, Pechanga Resort Casino, and Tortoise Rock Casino are among the listed casinos that will host a fireworks show on their grounds. This fireworks event is open to everyone, but younger individuals must go with adults.
The casinos also hold other family-friendly activities to celebrate the month. Coachella Crossroads will feature fun games and live music before the fireworks show on July 3. Harrah’s Resort also offers a fun pool party with a DJ during the noon of July 4. Each casino has its own regulation regarding these events.
Visitors can also enjoy a good meal in the restaurants. The casinos offer interesting promo with traditional Fourth of July menus such as beef brisket, corn on the cob, and key lime pie. The bars promote special cocktails too, like Harrah’s Resort with their Vodka Bomb Pop.
These casinos provide special promotions for those who want to try their luck. For instance, the Valley View Casino & Hotel gives away T-shirts for club members on July 4. It also gives $100 worth of free gameplay for members who just signed up.
July is the month of music for Southern California’s casinos. Several acts will be performed in front of concertgoers. Genres vary from rock, country, to norteño.
Nancy Wilson, the guitarist, and singer for the rock band Heart will be performing at Agua Caliente Rancho Mirage on July 16. Another act on the list is Sammy Hagar & The Circle. The band will entertain audiences at Yaamava’ Resort & Casino. It is expected that the turn up will be great with the many famous acts coming into town.
Southern California’s casinos post-pandemic
The pandemic hit the casino industry in various states. For Southern California casinos, the pandemic caused a delay in expansion projects. As the situation gets better, these casinos proceed with their development.
Harrah’s, for example, collaborated with the infamous chef Gordon Ramsay to develop Hell’s Kitchen restaurant on its grounds. The place used to be a buffet, but casinos have started to switch from that dining system after the pandemic. The upcoming restaurant can accommodate 332 guests.
Yaamava’ also plans a massive expansion. It opened three new bars and a cafe. The casino also reopens its buffet and even brings back Sunday brunch, with some new exciting projects in the works. They include the 2,800-seat events center. Yaamava’ aims to elevate a fun casino experience for visitors.
On the other side of the country, Las Vegas casinos also begin their July celebration. They also bring back some entertainment activities halted during the pandemic. These casino strips slowly build themselves after disruption in the supply chains and the efforts start with offering high entertainment value.
