I was doing some looking and searching around today for events and promotions for the 4th of July. It falls on a Friday this year which means the casinos and hotels will be packed! I hope the gas prices doesn’t keep everyone else at home this year. I know I am staying home.
Here is what I found:
Big Bang Giveaway – $25,000 to be given away each day for July 4th and 5th. 10 winners a day. Get more info at IP players club.
Pat Benatar will play for the 4th of July anniversary weekend and a variety of entertainers are booked for the coming months, including soul artist Al Green, comedian Jeff Foxworthy, rock band Styx and country musician Gretchen Wilson.
The city of Ocean Springs will hold Front Beach 2008 Celebration, an all-day event featuring live musical performances, beach sports and fireworks.
Where: Stage on Front Beach Drive, between Jackson and Washington avenues
When: 11 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Who: Local and regional bands
De La Cruz: 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
SwampNoise: 12:45-1:45 p.m.

I am still trying to see what other casinos are having promotions or 4th of July specials. The Beau Rivage usually puts on something special, but can’t find any information yet.
Keep checking back.
