BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) — The grand opening for Margaritaville Resort Casino in Bossier City is set for the week of July 4.
Advertising and publicity manager Christy Wood tells The Times (http://bit.ly/18c7G5r ) officials expect to create a long weekend out of it, complete with fireworks and live music.
Casino developers received conditional approval to open the site from the Louisiana Gaming Control Board on Thursday. On June 13, casino developer William Trotter says the staff will start an eight-hour run before shutting down again to test the system and work out the final kinks.
Wood says management is working around Jimmy Buffett's tour schedule, though expectations always have been high he'll make an appearance around the grand opening.
