Harrah's is Host Once Again

Ribs will be the focus as top eaters gather in the shadow of Great Smokey Mountains National Park for the Harrah’s Rib-Eating Contest. A total of $5,000 will be on the line in the July 7 event in Cherokee, NC.

Ribs are considered extremely difficult to eat in competition and strong teeth are required. All eaters must be at least 21 to enter this contest and those with dentures, full or partial, are urged to closely consider the implications of participation.

“Harrah’s Cherokee is excited to offer our guests and patrons this unique form of sports entertainment,” said Leeann Bridges-McHattie, VP of Marketing for Harrah’s Cherokee Casino.

Harrah’s Cherokee is recognized as one of the premiere resorts in the Carolina area, and features an 80,000 square foot casino floor. It’s located on the Cherokee Indian Reservation at the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Cherokee, North Carolina. Harrah’s Cherokee Casino & Hotel is an enterprise of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and is managed by Harrah’s Entertainment, Inc. The casino opened in November 1997, and has opened two 15-story hotel towers since 2002. The casino also has a 1500 seat Pavilion featuring headliner entertainment, and four delicious restaurants.
