Oaklawn will host Cruise Into Summer Sunday, June 29 from 6 - 10 p.m.. There will be $4,000 up for grabs and winners every 10 minutes! Guests can pick up their entry and lei at the Winners Circle. Enjoy our $4.99 Summer Buffet from 5 - 10 p.m. in Lagniappes. There will also be live entertainment by Darril Edwards in Pop’s Lounge. And, what would a party be without a few drinks. We'll have $2 Lazy Magnolia Drafts and $2 Daiquiris throughout the night. Cruise on into Oaklawn for one of the biggest parties of the summer!
Every 10 minutes from 6 p.m. - 10 p.m., Oaklawn will draw three names from the raffle drum. The guests with the winning numbers will then get to choose from 3 portholes from the cruise ship board. Two of the portholes will have $25 and one will say “winner.” The winner will get to spin the captains wheel for a chance to win between $50 and $200. These players will also receive a boarding pass, making them eligible to win the cruise package. The boarding pass will each have a port city, a boarding gate, and a room number on them.
At 10 p.m., Oaklawn will call all 72 winners back to the promotions area where we will draw from the port city envelopes. This will eliminate all but 18 contestants. We will then draw from the boarding gate envelopes, which will eliminate all but 9. The final contestants will line up in front of the promotions area where Oaklawn will then draw the final room number and the lucky guest holding that boarding pass will win the cruise! Players will have three (3) minutes to reach the promotions area after their name is called. If a guest does not arrive in the allotted time, a new name will be called until a player is found.
