Full House Resorts will celebrate the re branding of its casino with a ribbon cutting ceremony and celebration taking place on August 19th in the Pavilion. The Pavilion will also host a group of international Cirque artists which includes aerialists, high wire walkers, acrobats and expert jugglers. Shows will be performed all weekend from 3:30 to 8:30pm on Friday and Saturday and 1-5pm on Sunday. Free live entertainment continues in the Pavilion from some of the best party bands like Vigor — with Cincy Rockers taking over in the Pub at 9:00 pm.
The ribbon will be cut at 4:00 pm by Mr. Hilliou, Mr. Jimenez and the Mayor of Rising Sun, Indiana, the honorable William Marksberry, as well as other local dignitaries and officials. The event is free to attend and open to the general public.
“The renaming of this great property completes the first phase of our acquisition plan and we look forward to working with our associates at Rising Star Casino Resort to bring a more exciting and fun gaming experience to the tri-state region,” said Andre Hilliou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Full House Resorts.
The Rising Star Casino Resort will also bring new and improved entertainment options, with free entertainment in both the Pavilion and the Pub, including classic hit bands, magicians and greeters. More entertainment and more excitement will continue with star headline entertainers, including country superstar LeAnn Rimes on Saturday, August 20th and Marie Osmond on Saturday, August 27th.
“We took the name change very seriously and looked at many possible names, with focus groups conducted to ask our customers which name they preferred. We selected Rising Star Casino Resort because it was the first choice of our customers and we felt it represented our strong link to the community of Rising Sun, Indiana. The new name and logo also reflects a more vibrant brand image consistent with Full House Resorts’ commitment to provide more fun, more excitement and more entertainment for their customers and coincides with the same warm, friendly, customer service that our employees have always provided.” added Steve Jimenez, General Manager of Rising Star Casino Resort.
