"The city is excited for the new Harrah's Metropolis casino and looks forward to the positive changes they are bringing with the new facility."

Grand opening festivities to celebrate the new space will begin Wednesday, Nov. 19 and continue throughout the weekend with an all-star line-up of live music, special events and promotions.
