(WMC-TV) - It's that time again.

As every August, Elvis fans from around the world will gather in Memphis – specifically Whitehaven – for a celebration of the music, movies and legacy of Elvis Presley.

For some dedicated fans in Memphis, Elvis Week means as much to them as it does to travelers visiting from the other side of the globe. But for other locals, Elvis Week means lots tourists across the Mid-South hitting other areas in downtown, Midtown, and surrounding areas.

Action News 5's Your Neighborhood plans to get the local side of Elvis Week this year. Stay tuned next week for photo galleries, stories, and more from this Saturday to the candlelight vigil.
