ELVIS AT CHRISTMAS
SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN ELVIS STYLE
Annual Memphis tradition continues as Graceland shines with Spectacular Lights plus Elvis traditional Christmas decorations
Graceland officially began the holiday season on Thursday, 17th November, 2016 with the annual lighting of the lights and decorations on the mansion and plaza property. After a countdown by everyone in attendance, the Christmas switch is flipped by Santa Claus and Graceland holiday come alive for another season.
Santa leaves the Graceland Mansion in a Limousine, down the driveway which is lit up with hundreds of Blue Christmas lights. The Limousine then crosses the main EP Boulevard to arrive Graceland Plaza, across the street from the Mansion. Police are out to stop all the Traffic. Santa Claus will appear decked out with a decidedly Elvis attitude, dramatically arriving from Graceland with Elvis style. Hot chocolate and holiday cookies will be available to make this a tradition to remember.
The holiday spectacle includes Santa and his sleigh and reindeer. a life-size Nativity scene, Lighted trees, and many more of the original decorations Elvis himself displayed around Graceland. Over two million blue & white lights are displaced at Graceland Plaza. Following Elvis' own tradition, all interior and exterior Christmas decorations will remain in place through until Elvis’ birthday on the 8th January
This whole Christmas Experience was just M A G I C A L
