SugarHouse Casino’s Memorial Day Weekend will be highlighted by riverfront entertainment and a fireworks show on Saturday. But all weekend long, the casino will be giving more than $150,000 in prizes and offer a seafood fest in its restaurant.


The weekend’s main celebration will be on Saturday along The Waterfront, the casino’s riverfront deck that overlooks the Ben Franklin Bridge.

The entertainment begins at 6 p.m., and here’s the lineup:

6 p.m. Live DJ
7 p.m. 52nd Street, a Billy Joel tribute.
8 p.m. Live DJ
8:30 p.m. Captain Fantastic, an Elton John tribute with a special effects piano.

10 p.m. Fireworks display over the Delaware River. The fireworks can be viewed from the casino’s riverfront walking path, which is open to the public, but guests must be 21 to enter the casino and watch from The Waterfront deck.

During the entertainment and fireworks show, SugarHouse will have concessions along the riverfront selling snow cones, root beer floats, barbecue sweet corn, turkey legs and more.

Money Grab and Prizes
Friday through Monday

Starting on Friday and continuing through Sunday, one guest will be chosen every hour from noon to 9 p.m. to enter SugarHouse’s Money Grab machine to win a share of $100,000 cash. The Money Grab Machine is a clear box, like a phone booth, that circulates money. Guests grab as much as they can.

Boat Grand Prize

On Memorial Day, SugarHouse will be giving away its weekend grand prizes including up to $10,000 cash or a 2012 Yamaha AR20 Speed Boat. The Monday drawings will take place every hour from 4 p.m. until the boat grand prize is drawn at 8 p.m.

Seafood Fest
Saturday through Monday

The Refinery restaurant will host a seafood fest throughout the weekend, which includes one-pound lobsters, popcorn shrimp, fried clams, beer battered tilapia, chicken scampi and more for $21.95.
