It’s ELVIS WEEK: The King and the Law, and candles

If Elvis were alive today, and still lived at Graceland, and had ONE yard sign in front of the mansion, I’ve got to believe it would be this one.

Today at Graceland:

Conversations on Elvis Panel

10:00 am. Graceland Soundstage, Elvis Presley’s Memphis.
Tickets: $30.

Hear personal stories and favorite memories from Elvis’ friends and family. Hosted by Tom Brown, this will be a celebration of Elvis’ legacy from those who knew him best. Guests include Bill Morris, former Shelby County Mayor and Sheriff who was friends with Elvis; Pat West, who served as Elvis’ secretary at Graceland; and Bonya McGarrity, who was Elvis’ secretary at Graceland in the early 1960s.

Read the article and watch the video in the article from FOX News:

Elvis Presley’s pal recalls last time he saw The King he ‘looked so bad’: ‘Everybody had tears in their eyes’

“He was absolutely a strong supporter of law enforcement.”

Also, tonight at Graceland:

Candlelight Vigil
8:30 pm. Gates of Graceland.

After an opening ceremony at the Gates of Graceland, fans are invited to walk up the driveway to Elvis’ gravesite and back down carrying a candle in quiet remembrance. Gates remain open until all who wish to participate in the procession have done so, which typically takes until the early morning hours of August 16, the anniversary of Elvis’ passing. The Candlelight Vigil will be open for all to attend. No special passes or wristbands are required to participate in the Candlelight Vigil. All guests will be required to pass through security checkpoint. Can’t be in Memphis for the vigil? Watch it live on our Graceland Livestream page.
