Get caught up in the merriment of your favorite holiday on Thursday, July 23

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (July 7, 2009) – Kids aren’t the only ones who just can’t wait for Christmas. The Tropicana Casino and Resort will be bursting with the festive spirit during a property-wide Christmas in July celebration on Thursday, July 23, 2009 from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Fiesta Plaza.

Free Entertainment
The Tropicana knows how to deck the halls and set a proper holiday mood. Guests strolling through The Quarter will enjoy holiday decorations and music, a live organist and the Rock ‘N Roll Choir. Every 15 minutes, a magical snow will fall from the “sky”. And even though the “big man” is technically on vacation for another five months, Santa himself will make an appearance in his resort attire throughout the day. Santa’s helpers will also be roaming the property handing out candy canes during the event.

Christmas Club Drawings
Diamond Club Players will want to be at the slots or tables from noon to 8:00 p.m. because, every hour on the hour, one member actively playing with their card will be called to win $500 EZ Slot Dollars.

Spectacular Events
The Tropicana will also host a contest like no other—the Havana Santa Look Alike Contest. Participants should report to Fiesta Plaza by 7:30 p.m. in time for the contest to start at 8 p.m. followed by an after-party at Planet Rose. The grand prize Santa will win a $500 gift card to Tropicana! The first runner-up will receive an overnight stay and gourmet dinner for two to a Tropicana restaurant. Keeping in the spirit of the season, The Tropicana will also present a $10,000 check to The Salvation Army in support of their Christmas in July 2009 5K Run and 1 Mile Fun Walk. Plus, Tropicana employees will be decked out in Christmas spirit wearing Santa hats and greeting guests with a “Happy Holidays” all day long.

Festive Food & Drink
Gather around the table at Corky’s for specials on festive holiday drinks and Santa’s favorite desserts. Martini connoisseurs will love the holiday-themed flavors flowing at Planet Rose including the Gingerbread Man, Candy Cane and Snowflake.
