Elvis Fest 7 (Seminole Casino Hotel- Immokalee)
* Elvis Fest 7.
Literally just this minute, Jeff Eats received the “below” press-release…
Seems to me, that going to Elvis Fest 7 could be a whole-lot cheaper/easier than schlepping all the way to Graceland!
On a related subject…
Is it possible that “one” of the many Elvis impersonators-out there…is actually Elvis?
Thank you very much!

Jeff, sounds like a nice event. Your right, it’s a heck of a lot closer, then going to Graceland. Anyway, you and your readers you check out Shawn Klush. A few years back, he was voted the top Elvis impersonator in the Country. He looks and sounds like the real Elvis. I’ve seen many videos of Shawn. You can check him out at….Shawnklush.com
This particular casino just opened a hotel on the premises.
This Elvis event could be a fun weekend.
I had a very dear friend who passed away a number of years ago. He was a rabid Elvis fan. To his dying die he swore that Elvis was still alive and that he was working as an Elvis impersonator. He claimed to have seen Elvis in a car in a gas station in Pompano Beach.
I saw Elvis twice in concert. First was at Madison Square Garden and then again at Nassau Coliseum.
This looks like a fun event but too far of a drive from Pembroke Pines where I live.
Booked 2 rooms.
4 of us are going this weekend.
Should be fun.
