Thirty-six years ago, Elvis left the building. But even after so many years, his legacy and music is still alive and going strong. Visitors from all over the world visit Graceland during Elvis Weeks (Birthday in Jan. & Anniversary in Aug.) and all year long.

On August 15th, the eve of his passing, fans gather in front of Graceland for a candlelight vigil and walk through the gates and up the driveway to pay their respects at the grave, located in the Meditation Garden at the rear of the house. This video is just a glimmer of what I saw and experienced on my trips to Graceland. Long live the King!
