BILOXI, MS (AP) -

Casinos and New Year's Eve are made for each other. The Coast will soon be ringing in the new year, and the casinos are pulling out all the stops.

The Imperial Palace Casino is putting the final touches on its New Year's Eve celebrations as a way to thank loyal casino patrons.

Organizers say it will be a wall-to-wall party with two big themes on the agenda. It will be all 80s upstairs at the IP convention rooms. Studio B will turn into Studio 54 to celebrate the 70s theme.

The celebration has been nearly a year in the making.

"You know, it's kind of our celebration at the end of the year," said the IP's Kim Goetz. "We've had a tremendous year this year. We want to celebrate with our customers and wish them well next year as well."

About 8,000 people are expected to fill the casino Thursday night. The fun will last from 9 p.m. until just after midnight.

The party includes a celebration open to the public at Chill nightclub. There will be free party favors and a champagne toasts to ring in the new year.
