It seems like just yesterday when a big patch of scrappy land outside of Pendleton contained the vision of some gutsy entrepreneurs who wanted to build a casino and entertainment complex.  20 years later, it's still going strong.

I had a chance to talk with Al Tovey, who's the event coordinator among many other hats worn at Wildhorse.  We spoke about the history behind the place that's become a destination for gaming, entertainment, and just plain getting away for people all over the Pacific Northwest.

Wildhorse plans a number of events to celebrate their anniversary, including one of the biggest fireworks display shows in the entire Northwest March 14th.  They also are ramping up the winning, with a Let It Roll $80K promotion, with $20,000 given away each week.  A complete lineup of musical entertainment is also planned, and you can see all the details on their website.
