Elvis Week

Today is the first day of the first day of Elvis Week in Memphis, Tennessee and the beginning of a week long remembrance of the 33rd anniversary of Elvis' death. Some of the planned events include a tour of the Graceland Mansion, Shake, Rattle & Roll at the Shell (a benefit concert for the Alzheimer's Association), the Elvis Presley 5K Run, Walk, Rock & Roll to benefit cerebral palsy, and a tour of the Elvis Presley Automobile Museum. The week's celebration will conclude on Sunday night with a candlelight vigil from Graceland to Presley's gravesite, ending in the early morning hours of August 16 — the day on which Elvis passed away in 1977.
