Kewadin Casinos Christmas will host an evening of winter wonder, festive food and holiday fun on Thursday, Dec. 8. The evening's highlight will be a ceremony to light a giant outdoor Christmas tree at 6 p.m.
The community tree-lighting ceremony will be an outdoor, family-friendly festival - a nice start to the holiday season. Kewadin's tree this year rivals the size of the tree outside the state Capitol building, with lights and other decorations. Guests are encouraged to relax and enjoy the Christmas ambiance as free hot cocoa, hot cider and venison chili is served inside a heated tent.
The entire property has undergone a holiday makeover. Some new pieces include a 20-foot Santa, life-size Mr. and Mrs. Claus, elves from the North Pole, candy cane-wrapped beams, modernized dining and revamped menus.
Visitors who go inside will find an entirely new restaurant, Frosty's Pub ‘n Grub, offering unique food items and craft beer. The facility overhaul has brought the Christmas spirit to Kewadin Christmas Casino.
"We're excited to host this fun-filled holiday celebration," said Kewadin Casinos CEO Michael Olujic. "These latest property enhancements, coupled with community events, are just another way Kewadin Casinos is offering excitement and entertainment opportunities throughout the eastern U.P."
The latest changes to the Christmas casino are part of a year-long rebranding campaign by Kewadin Casinos to revitalize its five Upper Peninsula casinos. The changes include adding hundreds of new slots, new dining options and special themes to make gaming even more fun at Northern Michigan's premier casino properties.
