Horseshoe Casino Opens

It was a "Chamber of Commerce" type of night - perfect weather and roughly 5,000 people on hand, waiting for hours in some cases, to be among the first gamblers in the city's history.
The event began with a video, projected on the facade of the former Higbee Building ... and using images from the city's history, sports teams and tourist attractions.
Also attending the event, member station WKSU reporter Kevin Niedermier.
