“Where Sunbeams and friends meet”

Your BASH this year promises to be a particularly memorable one.

Although it is really a one day event, your experience can begin Friday evening, June 13 with other Sunbeamer’s at the Hollywood Casino Mountain View Restaurant watching live thoroughbred racing from your own trackside table or having fun losing more money than the cost of a Sunbeam at the Casino.

  • Follow entrance signs in the area.
  • There may be a $10 gate fee to enter. However we are presently working on allowing those arriving in a Sunbeam to enter free.
