Garden Grove

Elvis has not left … Main Street

ELVIS WAS on hand both in spirit and in balloon form on Main Street Sunday in Garden Grove for the 21st annual Elvis Festival (Orange County Tribune photos).

Elvis Presley made a big comeback on Sunday in Garden Grove.

Well, it wasn’t exactly The King of Rock and Roll himself, but hundreds of fans of the man from Tupelo gathered on historic Main Street for the 21st Annual Elvis Festival.

In addition to many Elvis tribute artists, there was a giant Elvis in balloons (courtesy of the Happiness … is a Balloon shop on Main), a classic Cadillac car show, Elvis on stilts, many booths offering Elvis-esque memorabilia and a variety of food and other goodies.
