CHRISTMAS AT GRACELAND
Nov 16, 2017 until Jan 6, 2018
3734 ELVIS PRESLEY BLVD.
MEMPHIS, TN 38116
The arrival of winter at Graceland was always a special time of year. It meant the holiday season was fast approaching and the anticipation of all the fun things the season would bring including decorating for Christmas, opening presents with friends and family, the annual New Year's Eve party, Elvis' birthday and building snowmen in the front yard of Graceland.
Christmas at Graceland includes hundreds of blue lights along the driveway, a life-size Nativity scene, Santa and his sleigh and much more originally displayed by Elvis and the Presley family. Santa will be available for pictures with the kids throughout the evening's festivities.
The interior of Graceland mansion will also be decked in Elvis' Christmas décor for the holiday season and includes his traditional red velvet drapes and Presley family Christmas artifacts on display around the decorated trees.
November 16th will mark the official beginning of the holiday season when Graceland "flips the switch" on the traditional lights and decorations at the annual lighting ceremony. Following Elvis' own tradition, all interior and exterior Christmas decorations will remain in place through his birthday celebration on January 8, 2018.
Graceland's Holiday decorations may be enjoyed as part of regular daily tours of Graceland. For more information and to book your holiday tour of Graceland or to see the holiday lights from the LIVE GracelandCam visit www.elvis.com or call 901-332-3322.
