The roulette wheels will spin and the lights on the slot machines will flash when Cincinnati's Horseshoe Casino opens its doors to the public for the first time tonight.

For the past three years Cincinnati has held a shopping cart race around downtown to raise money for the local Freestore Foodbank.

This year's Cinciditarod took place around downtown Cincinnati and over the bridge into Newport, KY.

Contestants form teams, put on costumes, and decorate carts to race. There are checkpoints where the contestants are asked to eat, drink, dance, and even pose with Mr. Redlegs.

Teams have two and half hours to complete all the checkpoints before making it back to Fountain Square, the finish line.

Team Hoist won this year.
