Elvis Lives!


What Would Elvis Do?

Take a musical journey across the life of Elvis Presley this Friday with a concert extravaganza that pays homage to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Elvis Lives features four talented tribute artists who portray Elvis in one of four eras: the 1950s, the ‘60s, during his movie career and his final concert years.

 Elvis Lives is dedicated to the music that defines the King’s legacy, but what other legacies did Elvis Presley leave behind? In order to give everyone the full inside scoop into the life of Elvis Presley, we’ve put together a day full of Elvis-inspired activities. Be a part of this fun-filled day and join us on Friday night to hear some of the King’s greatest hits!

A Day in the Life of the King

Rumor has it that Elvis wouldn’t leave the house without a Pepsi in hand, so first things first, grab an ice-cold Pepsi to pack for the road.

While you’re at it, you’ll probably want to pack a lunch too. Good news -- you should already have all the ingredients you need to make the King’s favorite meal! All you need is two slices of white bread, a banana, a jar of peanut butter and, if you’re feeling daring, a couple slices of bacon. Elvis’ favorite meal was a grilled peanut butter, bacon and banana sandwich.

Need some instructions for how to assemble it? We’ve got you covered:  

Once you have your lunch packed, you’re going to need somewhere to go! You’ll be excited to know that we have an activity planned for you that Elvis himself wouldn’t have been able to turn down.

 It’s a well-known fact that Elvis loved animals.  He even had a pet monkey named Scatter! Although there aren’t many monkeys hanging around (no pun intended!) Northwest Arkansas, we do know where you could find a few closeby.

The Wild Wilderness Drive-Through Safari in Gentry, Ark. is home to many exotic animals! It’s the perfect place for you and your family to monkey around (I did it again!) on your day in the life of Elvis.
