We have a birthday in the house… Let’s put our hands together in celebration of the 14th Anniversary of Mohegan Sun! It’s hard to believe 14 years have whizzed by since the Sun’s opening on Columbus Day Weekend, 1996. Our region is lucky to have such a premier resort offering gaming, entertainment, dining, shopping, meeting, and lodging. The Mohegan Sun continues to evolve and along the way, they’re providing thousands of jobs. The Resident takes you down memory lane with photographs of 14 milestones at the Sun over the past 14 years here. Also, find out what the Residents on the Street are raving about here & here.
