Wind Creek Atmore Gets All Decked Out for Christmas

11/23/2017
ATMORE, Ala. – (11/21/2017) Wind Creek Casino & Hotel Atmore is sporting a new look for the
holidays. The property has been adorned in lights and decorations inside and out. “We really go
all out for Christmas. The lights, the environment is magical, it’s full of family and good times,”
says Assistant Property Manager, Terri Morris. “It’s really about family and just enjoying the
season.”

The outside lights can be seen every night from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve and is a
gift to the community from The Poarch Band of Creek Indians and Wind Creek Hospitality.
“This is really something that the tribe wants to give back to the community and the people
who live here and also our players,” says Morris. “We are so thankful that we are blessed
enough to be able to do this every year.”

The outdoor display is the largest one to date at Wind Creek Atmore, and the largest one that
Sound Associates Inc. of Theodore, AL does anywhere in the area. A crew of 14 spent two-anda-
half weeks working from 8 am until dark to get every detail of the project just right.
“What makes this place special compared to others is there’s a heavy saturation of lights and
bushes and trees and silhouettes that are close together and you can get close to it,” said Cole
Johnson of Sound Associates. “You can walk right up to it and there’s a whole lot of it.”

The three-acre area on the grounds of the property is bedecked in three and a half million
lights. The Christmas Village includes a Rockin’ Rudolph, marching toy soldiers, a nativity, Santa
in Toyland, sparkling candy canes and over one hundred twinkling, lighted trees. The
centerpiece of the winter wonderland is a 30’ tall lighted tree. “There are a lot of different
things. We have dinosaurs here, we have a hippopotamus for Christmas, we have Santa Clause
in a rock band, we have penguins sliding, we have gingerbread men,” says Johnson. “There’s a
whole bunch of things that you may not see in other Christmas-only themed displays.”

Inside the facility there are a total of 18 Christmas trees-each with its own special theme
brought to life by Kathy Lockwood and her crew from Atlanta Christmas Decorating.

“The trees here are fun and it’s really something that everyone in the family can participate
with, says Lockwood. “There’s something for the man of the house, there are beautiful elegant
trees, there are lots of fun whimsical trees that the kids will enjoy. It’s just a lot of fun and a lot
of color, and just an exciting place to come visit and have a good time.” Kathy and her team of
ten work for a week to decorate trees, and to hang garland and wreaths throughout the Wind
Creek Atmore interior. “The thing that is nice about this is that you get to experience that
wonder of Christmas, that inner child, and be able to see how fun something can be,” says
Lockwood.

There are many things for the family to enjoy and both young and young at heart are sure to be
delighted with the treasures to be found throughout the displays. “While you are here, swing
by the Entertainment Center and catch a movie, take your kids to the arcade, go bowling or visit
many of the other amenities on property,” says Morris. “Here at Wind Creek there is something
for your entire family, so come on out and celebrate the holidays with us.”
