Buffy Sainte-Marie Headlines the 2012 Mill Casino Salmon Celebration

The Mill Casino is thrilled to have Academy Award winning songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie perform two shows, 7pm Friday & Saturday Sept. 7 & 8, at our annual Mill-Luck Salmon Celebration.

The Oscar-winning singer and songwriter is known for both her protest and love songs including Until It’s Time for You to Go, Universal Soldier, and Up Where We Belong, the theme from the 1982 movie An Officer and a Gentleman, which won her both an Academy Award Oscar and a Golden Globe.

The artist recently traveled to England, Scotland, Germany, France, Belgium, Holland, Canada, the USA and Australia with her “Running for the Drum” tour.

Our annual celebration will also feature daily performances by Native American storytellers, drummers, flutists and dancers, a marketplace offering traditional wares and foods, a bay-front canoe exhibit and races, traditional games and activities for children, plus a variety of cultural demonstrations and educational exhibits. The celebration, which runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday is free and open to the public.

Tickets for Sainte-Marie’s 7 p.m. Salmon Room concerts and the popular Salmon Bake dinner, which will be served from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday are on sale at Ko-Kwel Gifts inside The Mill Casino • Hotel.

Adding one in Hammond and relocating the Gary casino would also strengthen the gambling industry in the region in case Illinois changes its gambling laws, McDermott said. If the changes happen, casinos will appear nearby in Illinois and pull revenues from Northwest Indiana. texas holdem poker set
