Get ‘All Shook Up” This Week


Elvis Presley week is officially upon us (Aug 10-16) and there are many places to visit to take in the spirit of the King.

In Memphis, Tennessee you can try your hand at the Graceland trivia tour, or if you really ‘sweat’ Elvis you can do a 5k run/walk this Saturday on the way to the annual vigil for Presley’s gravesite.

Presley’s hometown of Tupelo, Mississippi will have its annual appreciation day Wednesday. People will be able to win prizes and hear from people who knew the King when he was a toddler.

The Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix opened an Elvis exhibit on Aug 6th. All things displayed are from Graceland.

The Clinton Presidential Library and Museum located in Little Rock, Arkansas has a photo exhibit of Elvis on display through August 21st.  All of the photos of him were taken when he was 21 years of age.

August 16th marks the 34th anniversary since his passing.
