Along with the cooler temperatures and falling leaves comes one of autumn's favorite flavors...Pumpkin! The warm golden orange color evokes autumnal treats... hot apple cider, caramel apples and all things pumpkin spice!!!!

pumpkin is basically a squash.  The most common type is round, with smooth, slightly ribbed skin, and deep yellow to orange coloration. Inside their thick skin is a slimy stew of seeds and pulp. Pumpkins are native to North America and were originally grown for food.  Traditionally pumpkins were baked, mashed or stewed in savory dishes or in pumpkin pies.

We all know the story about the little piggies...you know, the one in which one little piggy ate roast beef, and one went “wee-wee-wee” all the way home. In that story one little piggy went to Market.  In the Emerald Island Casino version, five whole suckling pigs went to Market Street!  That’s right!   It's almost time for the Emerald Island Casino's fabulous Pig Out Party!

Emerald Island Casino is proud to announce that it will once again be entering team members to help crew a dragon boat in this year's Rose Regatta Dragon Boat Races and Festival.  The races and festival help to raise money for St. Dominican's R.E.D.

The last few months have seen amazing growth in Henderson's own Downtown Water Street District.  With new commercial construction and influx of new businesses, the energy on Water Street just keeps on getting more and more vibrant.  Water Street has long been the home of great street fairs, car shows and parades.  Now, coming to Water Street on September 30th, is the first ever live Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) outdoor show at the Henderson Events Plaza located at 200 So. Water Street.

While it still feels pretty warm in the afternoon, Fall is in the air, football is almost into the regular season and the World Series will be upon us sooner than can say "You're out!". With the cooler weather comes the reintroduction of some of your autumnal favorites at the Emerald Island Grille!  ​

As anyone who has visited Downtown Henderson lately knows, there are a number of new and exciting things happening in the Water Street District! Merchants on Water Street have several new neighbors and many more on the way!!!  The Emerald Island Casino is pleased to welcome their many new retail, food and beverage establishments and professional offices.
