If Elvis were alive today (and I guess there might still be some debate about that), he would be 72 years old today.
This weekend in Memphis there were several events to mark this day, including a Scavenger Hunt, a dance party and Elvis Bingo. More Elvis fun at Elvis Junky.
Can’t make it to Memphis? Then check out the GracelandCam for live shots of both the interior and exterior of E’s former home.
One can’t have a proper birthday without a cake. Last year the Food Network Challenge traveled to the Peabody Hotel and Graceland for pastry and bake-caking competitions. The challenge? Bake the most beautiful Happy Birthday Elvis Cake.
Are you going to be in Seattle? Be sure to attend The Elvis Invitationals, on Friday, January 12, where amateur impersonators get one chance to perform a song, in costume, backed by the Memphis Mafia all-star band, while competing for over $1,000 worth of prizes.
Are you lonesome tonight? Send your loved one a special Elvis Greeting Card.
If you just can’t make it to Seattle or Memphis this week, you can see 100’s of Elvis Tribute Artists as they compete for cash, prizes and the title of “The World’s Finest Elvis Impersonator” in New Orleans January 19-21st at the Elvis Extravaganza.
Looking for a summer event, maybe something international? Collingwood Elvis Festival, Collingwood, Ontario, Canada July 26 – 30th, 2007. Speaking of which, Collingwood was the location of the setting of a new World’s Record for â€œThe Largest Number of Elvis Tribute Artists Performing the Same Song on the Same Stage at the Same Timeâ€
Palm trees, soft white sands, and the sweet sounds of Elvis await you on the cruise ship “Pride of Elvis”. Join Shawn Klush, One of the world’s top Elvis Presley tribute artists and Terry Mike Jeffrey & the TMJ Band and exclusive events, including performances and photo sessions.
