August 30, 2014 (Alpine) – Viejas Casino & Resort will attempt to launch the world’s longest chain of fireworks—more than 10,000 – to celebrates its 23rd anniversary on Friday, September 12th at 8 p.m. You’re invited to the festivities near the Viejas Hotel pool to witness the sky come alive with fireworks during this Guinness Book of World Records setting attempt.

The fireworks will be shot-off from the parking lot and Viejas’ professional Fire Department will be on hand at the event, which is fully permitted. “Viejas prides itself on being a good neighbor, we have a stellar track record on these sorts of events and we encourage you to come out and enjoy the fun,” says Viejas spokesman Robert Scheid. While the total number of fireworks simultaneously aims to be a world record, the total number set off during the evening will be less than Sea World fires off each night during its summer display, he assured.

In addition to a dazzling fireworks display, visitors can also try their luck at slots and table games from 6 p.m. to midnight in the anniversary “hot seat” for a chance to win $1,000 being given away every 15 minutes on September 12.

Then on Saturday, September 13, Viejas will hold an anniversary cake cutting celebration in the V Lounge at 5 p.m., after which guests can watch Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maldana square off in a highly anticipated rematch on a 30-foot viewing screen at the hotel’s pool (weather permitting). In addition, a Dream Machine drawing will be held at 9 p.m. and one lucky guests will be able to drive home in a brand new 2015 Mercedes C250 coupe.

To finish off the anniversary celebration with a bang, a “Sunday Funday” celebration will be held Sunday, September 14 at which all V Club members will receive $10 in free play cash and the happy hour menu will be open all day.

Additional anniversary promotions will be held at Viejas Outlets across the street from the resort/casino, including anniversary bonus packs that can be purchased to enter a drawing for $100,000 to be held later in the month.
