The celebrations will continue on October 16th from 2pm to 7pm on the outdoor racetrack. These include live local entertainment, food trucks, and raffle prizes drawing every hour. A fireworks display will conclude the festivities at around 7:15 pm.
Aside from the celebrations, the rebranded Hollywood Casino will have new amenities to offer its customers. A sportsbook will be added to cater to customers who want to bet on sports events. The H Lounge will be an entertainment venue and a great place to watch live games as well.
