All right, the summer is upon us – a typical Mississippi Summer at the Elvis Presley Birthplace. BUT, this year is the 40th anniversary of the Death of Elvis. If you are an Elvis fan, then you know that this will be the largest anniversary ever.
Here at the Birthplace Park, the crowds have already picked up. Lots of international fans are already coming to see what’s jumping at the Park. Since the 35th anniversary, two new venues have been added.
Even though warm weather is still with us, summer is fading away. Fall will be here before you can say “Elvis has left the building”. This has been a terrific summer for all of us in the Elvis World. Because this was the 40th anniversary of his death, the Birthplace and even the streets of Tupelo were covered with FANS from all over the world.
Here at the Birthplace things have really been jumping. During our Fan Appreciation Day and several days following, over 50 motor coaches visited us and most visited the Downtown area as well.
Fall is in the air, well sometimes. It really is on the way as we already see Christmas ads and decorations. Here at the Birthplace, we are preparing for an exciting Holiday season.
The Motor Coaches have continued to come to visit all the venues at the Birthplace. Families, traveling to ball games and visits to friends also have not slowed. All the venues are now open and fans seem to really enjoy the newest, “REFLECTIONS”. The peaceful atmosphere, as well as the sights and sounds of fall, make this lake a special place to visit. There are several photo ops that will make excellent Christmas cards. Check them out.
