Happy New Year and Happy Birthday Elvis! Elvis Presley fans from around the world gathered at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee to celebrate Elvis' birthday. Highlights of the 2013 Elvis Presley Birthday Celebrations are now available. You can view the photo gallery or watch the video.
Located next door to Graceland is Graceland Crossing where the new exhibit Elvis' Hawaii – Concerts, Movies and More! officially opened on January 8th to coincide with Elvis' birthday. The exhibit showcases why Hawaii was one of Elvis' favourite places to visit showing movie memorabilia from his Hawaiian films, footage from his 'Aloha from Hawaii' television special, plus rarely seen photos and videos from the Graceland archives. This latest exhibit will be in place until early 2015.
