The scandaled laid history of the Wynn Casino project seemed to wash away on Sunday as a ribbon cutting and fireworks display officially opened Encore Boston Harbor to the public.

Thousands waited in an endless line to be the first to enter the resort. Visitors arrived by boat, plain, bus, trains and cars to attend the event that’s been talked about for years.

Glenn Reynolds, who arrived 17 hours before the ribbon cutting was excited upon entering the casino after waiting and standing in line with his homemade sign.

“I’m adjusting to certain things, but, it’s just magnificent. I ended up giving my sign to the president, Bob DeSalvio, they did a really great job. I am going to walk around, see what’s going on, check out the Popeye statue and check out the burger bar, I hear they have a 32oz mug,” said Reynolds.

A short ceremony at 9:30 a.m was attended by Everett’s Mayor and Wynn officials, and members of the gaming commission, but absent was Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, Governor Baker and other surrounding community members.
