Ballots for the “Hundred Grand In Your Hand” Giveaway appear in every Georgian Downs program.

Families will enjoy the carnival attractions of Gold Rush, including pony rides, petting zoos, gold panning games, horse & buggy rides, face painters, roving musicians, free celebrity horse photos, rodeo-style horse performances and much, much more!

The first 1,000 fans through the door on the evening of July 11 will receive a limited edition Gold Rush baseball cap with program purchase. In addition, each program contains ballots for $1,000 editions of Deal or No Deal and Money Machine Madness.

All the fun begins at 7:25 p.m. The staff of Georgian Downs can’t wait to see you for Gold Rush.
