The 2 year anniversary of the opening of Wynn occurs as Friday the 27th of April becomes Saturday the 28th. Wynn officially opened to the general public at the very start of Thursday 28 April 2005.
People lined up on Las Vegas Boulevard hours early, on the evening of Wednesday 27 April 2005 for the midnight opening.
Here is a shot from 2 days before Wynn opened.
