The gaming and events offer a full day of activities. It would have been nice if they had a band, which would have extended my stay.

We went to the fair on August 15th, 2014, & it was our youngest's 1st time & we passed thru the... More

I liked every thing about the casino. But I missed the weekend bands also I wish I could win a few more times at the casino and you had more free plays more often.
