Elvis fans from all over the world gather in Memphis

Elvis fans from around the world will descend on Memphis this weekend. It's the King's birthday and every good Elvis fan wants to be a part of the celebration.

This weekend also marks 50 years since Elvis became a superstar.

**1956 Elvis released his first RCA single

**Had his first television appearance

**Released his first movie.

So, this weekend Graceland is officially kicking off the year-long celebration in honor of Elvis's 50th Anniversary. They are hosting several big events throughout the weekend, but tickets for most events are already sold out. That means thousands of Elvis fans will be in town this weekend for the big event. More people may mean a little more traffic but ultimately it's a good thing, brining more revenue to the city.
