The festivities will kick off at 4 p.m. with an Elvis impersonator on site to shop and take photos with fans.

There will be pizza with Elvis at Cameli’s (5:30 p.m.) and Savage (6:30 p.m.) in the neighborhood. 

At 8 p.m. the fun will move to Little 5 Corner Tavern. There will be Elvis karaoke; peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwiches and birthday cake. 

For those brave enough to perform a cover at karaoke, there will be Elvis sunglasses, while supplies last.
