WinStar Casino to celebrate historical Lunar New Year

5 January 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- As the 2017 Lunar New Year quickly approaches, WinStar World Casino and Resort is undergoing preparations to usher in the Year of the Fire Rooster. The historical event officially takes place on 28 January and has been 60 years in the making. The last Fire Rooster year was 1957.

In addition to Lunar New Year inspired decorations throughout the casino, there will be interactive character performers. Statue performers and lion dancers will provide colorful, lively entertainment at the Rome Grand entrance. The dates and times of performances are the following: 22-29 January from 6 to 8 p.m.; 27-29 January from 9 to 11 p.m.; and 28-29 January from 3 to 5 p.m.

"Guests will not be disappointed with the scheduled entertainment and festivities," said Stephanie Callaway, WinStar's entertainment manager. "The Year of the Fire Rooster signifies dawn, awakening and success. We believe patrons will have a memorable time as they help celebrate this exciting time that only comes around every 60 years."

A Vietnamese variety concert will take from on 8 p.m. 29 January inside the Global Event Center. The sold-out Ðinh Dâu 2017: The Year of the Rooster show will pay tribute to the industry's biggest personality alive, famed MC and novelist Nguyen Ngoc Gnan. Also, more than 25 of the biggest names in Vietnamese entertainment will perform in honor of Ngan's 25th anniversary celebration.

Guests 18 years and older can pick up special $2 bills to commemorate the 2017 Lunar New Year festivities. The bills will be distributed from table game pits beginning 22 January, while supplies last. Commemorative Year of the Fire Rooster players club cards will also be available while supplies last.
