Tunica Casinos: All Will Be Open for Memorial Day Weekend

Here’s a bit of good news for the people in Tunica. All of the casinos will be open again in time for the Memorial Day weekend. They must have worked hard day and night to get everything cleaned up in time. Here’s the announcement from Tunica Travel:  The Mississippi River is receding and the Tunica casinos are rolling out the red carpet for their reopening. All 9 Tunica casinos will be open in time for the Memorial Day weekend and some of them are planning reopening celebrations that you don’t want to miss.

Sam’s Town opened yesterday, and Resorts Casino will be open today. Bally’s will open on Friday. (Note: Bally’s hasn’t updated their web site to announce the opening just yet.) Fitz’s casino has invited everyone to come out for hamburgers and hot dogs and refreshments on Friday. Plus they’re giving away “I survived the flood tee-shirts.” I got a chuckle out of their web site that announces in big letters, “Just a little water. No biggie.” They have a good picture of the place surrounded by the flood waters too.

Harrah’s will reopen on Friday with a special “Paula Deen dinner” for all of the first-responders who helped out during the flood. Nice way to kick off the grand re-opening, I would say.

I know these folks will be so happy to get back to work again, and they’ll be on pins and needles, waiting for their old (and new) friends to return.

The people in Tunica and areas nearby had a bit of a scare yesterday when the winds started blowing, and funnel clouds were spotted all around, but fortunately, nothing touched down and nothing was damaged. Those folks have been through quite enough with the flood. Here’s hoping they have a good crowd over this holiday weekend.
