TUCSON, Ariz. -- Casino del Sol and the Pascua Yaqui tribe topped off their hotel tower Wednesday afternoon with a special dome.

Fireworks filled the sky and music played as a giant crane lowered the copper dome onto the building.

The copper dome placed on the hotel is 26 feet and weighs 11,000 pounds.

"It will really be very iconic, it won't just be another dome," said Wendell Long of Casino del Sol.

The dome has color changing lighting so it can be seen at night as well as a cooper look during the day

Work on the structure is still taking place and the hotel's grand opening will take place on November 11 of this year.
