Built in 1896, the Colorado Grande Casino and Hotel is believed to be haunted by a ghost called Maggie, an rose-scented Irish woman in turn-of-the-century clothes. Her apparition sometimes shows up playing slot machines with a male ghost, or else simply appears as a blue light. Another ghost, that of a young girl called Lily, is said to linger on Bennett Avenue near the hotel. Legend has it that Lily loves purple balloons, and when one is left for her, it can be seen floating around as if being played with by unseen hands. Balloons left for her in other colors will simply pop.
