Memorial Day Bliss
With Memorial Day right around the corner, folks are preparing to honor the many men and women of the U.S. armed forces who served our great country. But it’s also time to celebrate the American values for which those people fought and still fight for today, with a weekend full of hometown fun! Examples of great weekend fun to be had include:
• Grill-masters throughout Mississippi should be stocking up on coals and comfort foods alike, since a good old-fashioned cookout is a mandatory Memorial Day meal. Some people like to shake things up with flavored wood chips and special spices, but traditional steak, burgers, fish and ribs all remain perfectly great on the grill no matter how they’re seasoned. Just be sure to leave room for the s’mores.
• Family get-togethers are fantastic, and many people plan reunions for the weekend to take advantage of the extra time off. The events provide a great opportunity to catch up with those you haven’t seen in a while, remember good times, and create new memories.
• Catching up with old friends is especially easy during Memorial Day Weekend, as your crew can kick back throughout a full three-day weekend.
• Then there are the parades, in all shapes and sizes, featuring plenty of patriotic pageantry and flower-filled floats. In fact, Memorial Day parades are as old as the holiday itself, with both dating back to 1868 and both originally held to commemorate the end of the U.S. Civil War.
Additionally, Memorial Day provides the chance to check out fun local attractions while friends and family are in town. We recommend the Isle of Capri® Casino Hotel Lula!
A top Delta destination for gaming, the Isle of Capri offers a winning Memorial Day weekend that kicks off on Friday, May 22! Join us for some Friday night fun with your friends when you play to win a share of $12,500 in Cash and FanPlay® in the Cash Cow Giveaway! Are you a member of the Nifty 50 club?

All told, players can get in on the action at 20 Vegas-style table games and more than 900 slot machines, including video poker.
The Isle of Capri Casino Hotel Lula is much more than a first-class gaming destination. The facility actually features two standout hotels, complete with an outdoor pool and up-to-date fitness center, so that guests can recharge their batteries after an electric day at the casino.
Moreover, although many eaters do indeed visit the expansive buffet, the Isle of Capri is also home to Otis & Henry’s® Bar and Grill. There, chefs create trademark specialties like Shrimp Scampi with Fried Green Tomatoes, along with premium pub fare such as classic hamburgers, all the way up to prime rib, petite filets and lobster. Diners who prefer lighter fare can head for the O&H Express® and pick up a variety of sandwiches and appetizers 24/7, with hot breakfast sandwiches and muffins on the morning menu daily.
A weekend full of hometown fun… It’s the ideal way to make this Memorial Day one to remember!
